A E I O U – A Quick Alphabet of Love

A E I O U – Das schnelle Alphabet der Liebe

63rd TIFF: Greek Premiere

An actress is mugged in front of a trendy bar in West Berlin. Barging into her, a young man takes her handbag and runs off into the night. A short while later, they meet again. Anna (Sophie Rois) and Adrian (Milan Herms). This time she is his teacher and is supposed to improve his speaking skills. Adrian is an orphan and considered a “difficult case.” Anna is an actress but hasn't been working for a while. Both have strayed from their path and don’t quite fit in. She thought it would never happen to her again. He didn’t even know such a thing existed. A woman, a boy, and another impossible love story.
