Berlin calls…Dublin answers!
A suggestion to improve your English, that you could get when you are attending an English course Dublin, is watching movies in original language and possibility with subtitles. Furthermore watching a dubbed film will never be as good as watching the original version. Why? Because in the original version, the actor’s voices are real. Everything is just like the director imagined.
A few days ago I and my mates of the English school Dublin watched a real interesting movie: “Berlin calling” . It is a 2008 German tragicomedy directed by Hannes Stöhr. It is a feature film that captures the life of a contemporary electronic musician set in the Berlin of today; a modern city in every sense of the word. The story trails DJ Ickarus (Paul Kalkbrenner), a hard working, creative artist who is engaged to create a new album, to perform in several countries and to take care of his relationship with girlfriend and manager Mathilde. Throw in a propensity for excessive drug consumption and the landscape of the film has a dark realism that touches on the destructive nature of the self, especially when isolated or intoxicated. After one particular concert Ickarus finds himself in the emergency drug ward of a Berlin psychiatric clinic and so the struggle begins. Everybody drops him. The companion moves in with her lesbian girlfriend and even his record label. Only the tax office is loyal , they want 25 000 Euros. But when everything looks lost the genius come out: in the psychiatric clinic he manages to compose his best album, that will become a international success. Simply genius! Check out the trailer of the movie and listen this amazing song “Sky and sand”! Enjoy it!
