Twitch has provided a few first look images from Tom Tykwer‘s Three (German title: Drei), a contemporary love story set in current day Berlin. Tykwer is probably most known for Run Lola Run and The International, although his newest title seems deviate largely from the fast-paced feel of those two films. The full plot synopsis, provided by /Film, can be read below:
THREE is about Hanna and Simon, a couple in their early forties who lives together in Berlin. Unknown to each other they both become acquainted with Adam, a younger man – and fall in love with him. When Hanna becomes pregnant, their whistle gets blown – and the question pops up: Who is the father? THREE is a tragicomical movie about love, morals and the sexes in a late-modernist German society at the mercy of its mixed feelings.
The cast is made up mostly of reputable German actors, including Sophie Rois, Devid Striesow, and Sebastian Schipper. While the film’s storyline may seem very basic, I am excited to see how Tykwer brings his visually dynamic style to a genre that is usually presented in a straightforward fashion, viscerally speaking. I’m not exactly expecting the split screens of Run Lola Run, but I’m sure the filmmaker has many other techniques up his sleeve for Three.
Are you looking forward to Tykwer’s next film?
