Production Report featured in
German Films Quarterly 04/2019

Writer-director Simon Verhoeven's latest comedy marks his fifth collaboration with producers Quirin Berg and Max Wiedemann after such box-office hits as MEN IN THE CITY 1 & 2 and the 2016 refugee comedy WELCOME TO GERMANY.

Bartender Milo (Elyas M'Barek) meets the woman of his dreams, Sunny (Palina Rojinski), in a fateful moment and arranges to go on a date. Everything seems to be running smoothly, but when Milo's chaotic friend Renzo (Frederick Lau) turns up, the romantic evening escalates into an absolutely mad chase through Berlin's nightlife pursued by some underworld heavies. However, nothing will shake Milo and Sunny's love if they can survive this date...
