“Planet Alex – pure cinema, whose rhythm of narrative is on the pulse of the times!” Süddeutsche Ztg 21.1.01

“In this modern-psychodelic odyssey a bunch of strange characters get zapped through the unoriented nerve system of Berlin.” Rhein-Neckar-Ztg

“Een fantasirijke trip…” E.Bokkinga – de Volksgraant, Amsterdam

Berlin Alexanderplatz 2000 – within 24 hours, various stories rotate between the heights and depths of the square, between the television tower and the subway shafts, between larger and smaller fates, that slowly but surely become entangled.

Love, murder, fairytale, drugs, madness, humor and a lot of music – Planet Alex moves playfully through various genres.
A sparkling firework of ideas that come together in a greater story. With its driving rhythm, the film sketches the seeming loss of orientation in Berlins city as a pulsating, shimmering network.
