Time & Tickets

In the standstill of the pandemic summer, a young couple wants a fresh start, moving from Hannover to Berlin. Lisa is an on-the-rise doctor bracing herself for a new position, Clemens is a talented but unsuccessful singer-songwriter crippled by self-doubt. To say goodbye, they host a dinner party in their now empty flat. But good friends cancel – and uninvited guests show up – including total strangers. As the attendees start eyeing each other’s achievements, the evening slowly escalates, leading to an emotional crash that uncovers misunderstandings, rivalries, animosities and anxieties.

Lukas Nathrath shot this delightful mix of drama and comedy – with hardly any budget – in a week in an empty house in Hannover. Nathrath developed the characters together with his actors during rehearsals. This is filmmaking at its soberest and purest.

Lukas Nathrath, Germany, 2023, 130 min. German spoken, Dutch subtitles. With Sebastian Jakob Doppelbauer, Pauline Werner, Susanne Dorothea Schneider, Julius Forster, Nils Rovira-Munoz..
