A day and a night in Berlin: Karma drives an electric wheelchair, a WG casting ends with a squat, a cook and an escaped dog become kings, everyone is looking for an expectant father and a rabbit gets a nerd to finally meet his neighbors. Do Berlin cabs actually go all the way to the Eiffel Tower? And who is the Queen of Berlin? NOTES OF BERLIN tells all these stories and more, inspired by real notes and notices found by attentive Berliners on lampposts, in stairwells or even backyards and then published on Joab Nist’s cult blog notesofberlin.com.
The film strolls with us through the city and takes an amused, insightful look at people and situations that might otherwise be overlooked. It’s a declaration of love for Berlin, showing everyday madness and chance encounters and making the city the protagonist, because “the heart of the city beats on the street.”
