LADIES NIGHT Pt. 2: MY LAST DAY WITHOUT YOU 9PM April 18
9PM LADIES NIGHT PART II
MY LAST DAY WITHOUT YOU
Stefan Schaefer (USA,2011) 92 minutes. English, German. Genre: narrative (romantic comedy)
When a young business executive, NIKLAS (28), is sent from Frankfurt to New York to shut down a division of his firm, he doesn't realize his life is about to be turned upside-down in one single day. By 9:30am he has done what he was tasked to do. But his flight back to Frankfurt doesn't leave for another 11 hours. In this time, seemingly by chance, he meets and falls for LETICIA (25), a beautiful African-American secretary and aspiring singer. The only problemunbeknownst to him, she's one of the people he just fired. They end up back in Brooklyn, where he meets her father, a pastor, and begins to realize who she is. Unable to tell her the truth, he stumbles through a romantic few hours of eating, walking through Brooklyn streets, and listening to her play music in her new apartment.
In the same vein as cross-cultural love stories such as BEFORE SUNRISE (1995) and ONCE (2006), MY LAST DAY WITHOUT YOU mines the humor and conflict that arises when two individuals - seemingly so different - are thrown together by a force they fight but ultimately cannot control...love.
