Martin (Nicholas Reinke) and Isabel (Claudia Eisinger) are best friends and in love with each other, but the other knows nothing about it. When Martin finally manages to confess his feelings to Isabel, their possible time together seems to have passed before it has even begun. Isabel is committed to the environment and travels to Africa to fight against genetic engineering in seeds. Now they have only three hours left to enjoy their fresh love.
A fine summer comedy; romantic and clever.
DREI STUNDEN is congenial summer cinema.
Boris Kunz capably balances emotional and down-to-earth aspects in his full-length film debut "Drei Stunden". Combined with the urgency that portrayal in real-time entails, a fast-paced, honest and sentimental romantic comedy has emerged.
"Drei Stunden" is, as such, not just evidence for the strength of young German comedic cinema; it is indisputable proof of the fact—the film builds castles in the air then laughs at them, cries over them and is astounded by them. Only so does the seriousness of life seem worth living for.
