Product Description

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 separately become acquainted with Adam, a younger man, and fall in love with him. 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.

Writer/director Tom Twyker (Run Lola Run, Perfume, Heaven, The International. Paris, je t'aime) is proving to be one of the most fearless and creative talents in film today. He knows how to create strange stories that take us by surprise, present them with excellent actors, selects and composes musical scores that are as perfect as any being created, introduces just enough philosophy and scientific investigation into timely topics to challenge our brains, and tops it off with inventive photography - superimposing split screens that enhance not only the progress of the story but also allow the presentation of brief glimpses of `dangerous' ideas that stirs the cauldron to boiling.

3 is a fascinating tale. Simon (Sebastian Schipper) is an artistic architect who works with sculptors to bring their art into being. He is in a longterm relationship with Hanna (Sophie Rois) who is a television journalist cum scientist who is widely popular in their hometown of Berlin. Simon and Hanna are in their forties and deeply in love. Simon is informed that his mother has advanced pancreatic carcinoma and when his mother attempts suicide with an overdose and fails, she is brain dead, supported on machines. Simon stays at her bedside while Hanna continues her line of investigation about new stem cell theories, attending lectures by the handsome Adam (Devid Striesow) - a married man with children who leads a separate life of clandestine but shortlived gay affairs. Simon's mother dies and Simon is diagnosed with testicular carcinoma, undergoes an orchiectomy and begins chemotherapy, losing his hair in the process.

I was very excited and thankful to this film's director, Tom Tykwer, for surprising me again. Like the characters in his movie, as a film buff I was also getting bored with the choices available both in commercial and arthouse cinemas around, until I saw "3" (a.k.a. "Drei", three in German). I left the cinema in a state of grace after seeing this well acted, beautifully written, bold, inquisitive, provocative film, as it deals with assumptions on people's sexuality and the labels we like to give ourselves, our need to categorize behaviour and sexual identity and it does it in a very thorough, honest way. It's a brave film, not afraid to go deep into its subject and to expose its characters, but whilst doing it, it's not at the same time some intelectual, cold, moral lesson. Much the opposite, if anything, it's against hypocritical false morality or simply standard dramas on how badly adultery can end as seen in examples like "Fatal Attraction", 'Unfaithful" and "Indecent Proposal", all of which scary and simplistic morality tales on how one shouldn't even contemplate a look at sex outside marriage, let alone involving homosexuality.
Speaking of which, this film also takes a fresh look on sexual drives and sees the adventure with the same sex not as a life altering, sexual identity changing experience, after which you are officially gay, but as a natural curiosity satisfaction, one that is handled without feelings of guilt or macho crisis; dealt with naturality. Sex here is seen as a tool for pleasure, not as something which says who you are, but simply what you can do.

Format: DVD
.....strangely philosophical and sometimes wondrous take on the Lives & Loves of men and women in today's world. BUT, hold on a sec...hasn't the behavior we are being shown likely EVER been so....even in humankind's earliest days, in the dark protectiveness of caves? Well, whether that is the case or not...now and today, a most perceptive Director of Film (Tom Tykwer) is giving us a stripped bare view into the lives of 2 Men and 1 Woman....the "3" who make up this proverbial TRIANGLE. So, you need only sit back...relax...then watch and see: ....Their discovery, first, of love with one another----then, finally, a loving-union of the "3".

I cannot tell you that the Male-Female Hook-up (can we call it "illicit") being shown us is any differently played out than in 100s of movie stories which have come before. BUT...on the other hand, and strikingly so, it is in the Male / Male "Connection" where you will find the Difference in this film. In a mainstream production such as this, rarely will you ever see shown Physically Realistic (and Tender) lovemaking between 2 men....being presented in such a forthright manner. Devid Striesow ("Adam") and Sebastian Schipper ("Simon") absolutely "ZING" in their scenes together. The word, Hot, does not describe it; though if written as HOT, perhaps it begins to do so. (WORD OF ADVICE: Director Tykwer's use of "split screen" techniques throughout, sometimes showing 4 to 6 activities occuring in one scene/shot, makes some of the "HOT actions" a bit difficult to follow and fully enjoy. Better you watch on video....rather than in the theater.)

As to the movie's performers and their abilites, these "3" actors are highly competent and experienced (extensive film histories)....
