LOVE SCENES FROM PLANET EARTH (MERKWUERDIGE VERHALTEN GESCHLECHTSREIFER GROSSSTAEDTER ZUR PAARUNGSZEIT, DAS)

LOVE SCENES FROM PLANET EARTH

It's a beautiful day and the Pope's in town. A down-on-his-luck writer takes a publisher's Ferrari for a joyride. Teenies get it on in shopping mall toilets. The writer's ex-wife falls for their baby daughter's kidnapper. A man and woman who are about to jump to their deaths decide to have six children. Lingerie and flavoured condoms change hands. Cinderella discovers the Mambo and the man of her dreams. And the cops can't cope. Just for starters. In a kaleidoscopic tapestry, the thread of love weaves its whimsical way through a European metropolis in the course of a single day. Paths cross, lives intersect and destinies merge. After all, it's spring - mating season. Love Scenes From Planet Earth is a sparkling and fanciful contemporary comedy of errors, mistaken identities, subliminal and overt desires, the battle of the sexes, cosmic flow, virginity and the logistics of "doing it" for the first time. Life, love, and the pursuit of happiness.
