Another interesting title at this year’s Venice Film Festival (from September 1 – 11) is the project titled Three (Drei), In Competition, from director Tom Tykwer (we all remember him from movie Run, Lola, Run).
Three is already being described as a “relationship-movie”, about love, morals and the sexes in a late-modernist German society at the mercy of its mixed feelings, or if you prefer the official synopsis part:
“A love story Hanna and Simon, a couple in their early forties, live together in Berlin. Unknown to each other they both become acquainted with Adam – and fall in love with him. When Hanna becomes pregnant, their whistle is blown – and the question arises: 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.
Director Tykwer described his new movie saying that “Three very different lovers find each other in Drei; the expectations bound up in role play and the problems inherent in assigning such roles have both playful and dramatic effects on the constellation.
Sexuality and morality are drawn into an experimental war that at the same time evolves into an existential battle over how to comprehend one’s own disposition with regard to sexual and social identity. Drei, then, is, shall we say, an associative narrative, a love story/drama/comedy.”
Three stars Devid Striesow, Sophie Rois and Sebastian Schipper.
