Not that many people in the UK have seen Berlin Calling. I'm pretty sure it didn't get a distributor, and the only reason I got to see it was that it was being hawked around UK Distributors. Obviously when I heard what it was about I was bang up for watching it.
It's OK, but that's about it. It stars Paul Kalkbrenner, a real life Berlin DJ who plays a less successful version of himself, gigging around the world but never quite making it. The premise was much better than the execution, but it was useful in solidifying the Tobias Rapp mythology if nothing else. Kalkbrenner acted in the film, made the soundtrack, and I think he also produced it.'Sky and Sand', is the theme tune if you can call it that.
