Oh what a tangled web is woven in ensembler "We," charting lives and loves of young people over a Berlin summer. Pic never lacks for a certain enthusiastic narrative energy, but may be too site specific to travel far theatrically, following domestic bow in January 2004; some tube sales and modest shelf biz seem the best course.

When twentyish hayseed Florian (Oliver Bokern, looking somewhat like Clay Aiken) arrives in the big bad city of Berlin, he discovers a childhood chum, Pit (Jannek Petri), now bisexual, hardened to the pace and determined to be a successful model. In short order, Florian’s fallen in with a group of varying ambitions. There’s his artist lover Petronella (Lila Schmid), married to aspiring film producer Till (Sebastian Reiss); heartbroken Judith (Karina Plachetka) mopes for bi b.f. Carsten (Knut Bergen), who has taken up with Pit, and so on. Quirkiest perf is turned in by Brigitte Hobmeier (Soren Voigt’s “Identity Kills”) in a role perhaps inspired by flaky, promiscuous Rachel from “Friends.” Helmer Martin Gypkens shows some storytelling confidence. Tech credits are fluid. Pic won the Max Ophuls promotional award in Saarbruecken in January.
