Tom Tykwer's 3 Trailer

"Ground control to Major Tom!" From the director of Run, Lola, Run and The International comes a sexy romantic drama with a nod to classic Hollywood screwball comedies. Strand Releasing has debuted the first official trailer for Tom Tykwer's 3 (the title is just the number Three), a Berlin, Germany-set drama centered on a 40-something couple who, separately, fall in love with the same man. It stars mostly European actors: Sophie Rois, Sebastian Schipper and Devid Striesow. The shots in this trailer are gorgeous, that's for sure, and there's a lot of naked people in it, but it gets a bit odd/wacky at the end with all that Space Oddity.

Watch the first official trailer for Tom Tykwer's 3, embedded from YouTube:

Hanna (Rois) and Simon (Schipper), a couple in their early forties, live together in Berlin. With their 20th anniversary looming, they become restless despite being truly and deeply in love. Unbeknownst to each other, they separately become acquainted with Adam (Striesow), a younger man, and fall in love with him.

Three is directed by award winning German filmmaker Tom Tykwer, of films like Winter Sleepers, Run Lola Run, The Princess and the Warrior, Heaven, Perfume: The Story of a Murderer, The International and the Wachowskis' Cloud Atlas coming up. This premiered at the Venice & Toronto Film Festivals last year, and won the Audience Award at Outfest 2011. Strand is bringing 3 to limited theaters starting September 16th.

It's pretty good. Solid movie. You should see it if you're in the right mood. In the meantime, watch this: I know it's in German, but it's awesome. Perfectly captures the film's atmosphere or most relationships. Here's my (flawed) translation: You on top. Me below. Harmony. Symmetry. Pa-rel-le-lism. Relaxation. At a trot. Flight. Returning home. Being unfaithful. Remorse. Not Marrying. No children. No moving in together. Moving in together. Getting children. Further. Older. Further. Slower. More slowly. Further.

Yes, great movie, one of Tykwer's best. And reeft is right, the other trailer (which s/he posted) captures the mood of the movie much better

Love to see her screaming "STOP!" at the pregnancy test. Definitely made me chuckle.
