A wild comedy that launches at full speed, Nightlife is an entertaining romp about the misadventures of friends lost in the Berlin night. On a night out bartender Milo (Elyas M‘Barek, also in this year’s The Collini Case) meets the woman of his dreams Sunny (Palina Rojinski, Welcome to GermanyGrandparenting 101) in a fateful moment and arranges to go on a date.

Everything seems to be running smoothly, but when Milo’s flatmate and chaotic childhood friend Renzo (Frederick Lau, also starring in The Perfect Secret) turns up, the romantic evening escalates into a mad chase through the city’s nightlife pursued by some underworld thugs. However, nothing will shake Milo and Sunny’s love if they can survive this date…

Punctuated by chase scenes and infused with a playful energy, director Simon Verhoeven’s Nightlife moves from buddy comedy with a hint of romance, to gangster movie and adventure, as this far from the perfect romantic evening is filled with a succession of misunderstandings, set against the landscape and agitation of Berlin at night.
