3 (directed by Tom Tykwer)

wasn't game for The International...I'm game for this.



official plot description:

From the director of Run, Lola, Run and The International comes a sexy romantic drama with a nod to classic Hollywood screwball comedies. Hanna and Simon, a couple in their early forties, live together in Berlin. With their 20th anniversary looming, they both become restless despite being truly and deeply in love. Unbeknownst to one another, they separately become acquainted with Adam, a younger man, and fall in love with him. Working again with his longtime collaborators (DP Frank Griebe, editor Mathilde Bonnefoy, and co-composers Johnny Klimek and Reinhold Heil), “3” is clearly not your typical 1930’s romp. This reinvention of those classic films with Tykwer’s sleek direction is a playful update, an intellectual study of a modern couple looking for redefinition in a world of absolutes.

I saw this at the Doris Duke Theater at the Academy of Arts here several months ago. Really liked it and the performances. There is one scene in particular that I thought was nicely UNDERplayed, whereas an American film would have done the opposite.

Huh!? Did I miss something? Because this was nowhere near "a nod to classic Hollywood screwball comedies". Still, I'm a HUGE Tom Tykwer fan some of course I'll see this. And Solid Snake, why weren't you game for "The International"? Terrific film!

The International looked mediocre to me. This film doesn't.

Was The International that terrorist bank thriller with Clive Owen? If so, it was mediocre.

I dunno what to make of the trailer of this flick. Nothing in it made me think it was advertising a "nod to classic Hollywood screwball comedies". It looked rather dour, actually.

So have they completely abandoned Donald Kaufman's script?

Re: 3 (directed by Tom Tykwer)

Is this a prequel to 9? Or Nine?

Actually, I think it's a sequel to The One.
