Between Tomorrow And Today is a parable of the emergence and disappearance of love, concentrated in just one night, a hotel room – and a couple, a woman and a man who barely know each other, but are filled with longing and tenderness. After their unforeseen meeting, they have to face the decision whether to start a new life together – at the cost of their extistenc so far.
Forty something Anouk, a translator who dreams of publishing her own novel, comes in Berlin across Heiner, an architect and somewhat older than her. He is a man who designs, who expatiates, who creates space. He dreams of building a cathedral. Both of them hide another dream, maybe the last time in their live, to start up a new and true love.
They have an amour fou in a hotel room, and the lives they led so far are at stake: They could stick to their respective - apparently stable - marriages – or start a future together, potentially right this particular night.
Anouk and Heiner open up with unconditional trust, exchange life stories – without having known each other before. Albeit the moment of most heartfelt love is elusive, devoid of permanence – it is notwithstanding of unequaled intensity.
After the break of dawn, Anouk and Heiner come apart, and it remains open if they will meet again. However, as for the characters, the film does not end in melancholy, but with a strong sense of having experienced the one true love, although just for a couple of hours – it might be irretrievably gone now, but will by all means be everlasting for both Anouk and Heiner.
The film's story is told after the novel “Eden Plaza” by Dagmar Leupold.
