Next Door

by Daniel Brühl

In a seemingly chance encounter, the movie star Daniel is being confronted by Bruno, one of reunified and gentrified Berlin's losers. He knows everything about Daniel – and is bent on revenge. Directed by and starring Daniel Brühl in his directorial debut.

And so this eternally overlooked man – one of reunification's losers and a victim of the gentrification of what was once East Berlin – takes his revenge. With Daniel as his target…
