Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg has released the first four photos from Tom Tykwer‘s new film Drei (English translation: Three), a contemporary love story set in current day Berlin which is set to premiere at the Venice Film Festival. The film is Tykwer’s first German project in a decade, and the first movie he has written himself since 2000. Here is the official plot synopsis:
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 includes German actors Sophie Rois, Devid Striesow and Sebastian Schipper. Tykwer has a great visual style. I’m a big fan of his earlier work like Run Lola Run, The Princess and the Warrior, and Perfume: The Story of a Murderer, but many were not impressed with The International. Hit the jump to see the photos.
