From the director of Run, Lola, Run and The International comes a sexy romantic drama with a nod to classic Hollywood's 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 become acquainted with Adam, a younger man.. 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.

The lyrical conclusion, set to the surging, diaphanous music of Debussy, gives "3" a surprisingly sweet aftertaste.Stephen Holden, New York Times, 09.15.2011
