In July back to product details

light fun romp

A fun romantic romp through the middle of Europe. Surprisingly solid for what it is, which is a romantic action comedy. In the interview included in the extras, the director mentions patterning it after "A Midsummer's Night". This is not a style I would normally like, but this film manages to pull it off.

A German Charmer

IN JULY is a nice double-entendre title, if ever there was one! You'll know what I mean once you've seen this German film--a pleasant romantic comedy with a contrived story, oodles of coincidence and a very predictable ending. Sounds iffy? As put together by able writer/director Fatih Akin (who does a nice turn playing a border guard), it all works. The acting takes the honors here and carries the film along on the shoulders of its charming characters. One of Germany's finest young actors Moritz Bleibtreu ("Run Lola Run," "The Experiment," "Taking Sides") is terrific once again, likewise the adorable Christiane Paul and the entire supporting cast. If you enjoy romantic comedies, you'll have fun. Just don't expect the moon--or, as this movie would have it, the sun.
