The third part in Arslan’s trilogy about Turkish youth growing up in Germany, focusing on 21-year-old Deniz during one long, labyrinth-like day in her life, in which she experiences everything that takes place around her with a feverish intensity.
A Berlin School hit with the feel of the Nouvelle Vague, Thomas Arslan’s A Fine Day follows a young woman for 24 hours through the streets of Berlin. With a naturalistic, ambulatory mood and sun-dappled photography so reminiscent of Rohmer and Varda, Arslan’s is a film to fall in love with.
