"In Berlin"

Michael Ballhaus, very well-known for being Scorsese's cameraman, made a docu film about Germany's capital, called "In Berlin". I hadn't heard about it, but they have in Florence this days a film festival focused partly on Berlin. So we went there.

The documentary has a beautiful photography and follows the daily lives of some Berliners, from Steinmeier, who is about to loose the elections next weekend, to a girl with Down syndrome who is an actress in a theater for disabled persons. The music and the edition are also fantastic. If you want to know Berlin better, then this is a must.
