In July
(DVD)

DIRECTED BY - Fatih Akin


Daniel (Moritz Bleibtreu, DAS EXPERIMENT, RUN LOLA RUN) is a shy and lovelorn science teacher in Hamburg, Germany. Juli (Christiane Paul) is a dread-locked, free-spirited Hamburg street vendor. They cross paths when Juli sells Daniel a sun-inscribed ring and tells him he will soon fall in love with a woman wearing a similar symbol--with the secret hope that she herself will be that woman. But before Juli can fully orchestrate her romantic plans, Daniel meets a beautiful Turkish tourist and determines to follow her to Istanbul. It isn't long before Daniel embarks on a cross-country trip around the backroads of Eastern Europe in search of love--with a hitchhiking Juli not far behind. Written and directed by Fatih Akin, this German romantic comedy blends well-worn elements of slapstick, chance encounters, and an ensemble cast of eccentric characters into a surprisingly sweet and original cinematic creation.
