TICKETS ARE STILL AVAILABLE AT THE BOX OFFICE. Go directly to the Castro Theatre beginning at 12:30pm.
Preceded by the special Lifetime Achievement Award ceremony and tribute program for the legendary German actor Mario Adorf.
Ada (Fritzi Haberlandt), a young writer, and Nino (Mario Adorf), an aging screen star are stranded in a luxurious hotel for the night. Killing time at the hotel bar, they begin to engage each other in amusing and sometimes bizarre role-playing games. Their views on life could not be more different, but these contradictions are exactly what makes them more and more interested in each other. Ada intentionally asks him provocative questions about old age and Nino senses that he will not experience many more evenings like this in his lifetime. It is an extraordinary night for both of them, full of questions they would never have posed under different circumstances. A rare intimacy develops during their chance meeting and when morning breaks they part, safe in the knowledge that the night has enriched
them both. --Munich International Film Festival
