ADAM Y EVELYN
O.V. German subtitle in Spanish and English.
The summer of 1990 seems set to be complicated. Evelyn, a waitress, has just caught Adam (who is a ladies’ tailor) in a compromising position with one of his clients. Evelyn runs off (on holiday with some friends) and Adam follows her, heading west. And among various amorous liaisons, they are faced with the fall of the Berlin Wall. Summer relaxation and Rohmer-style lightness are interwoven at a crossroads in life where the personal cannot escape from the political. Or viceversa.
