Berlin-set, fun and dazzling comedy that recalls French favourite, Amelie. Following a childhood tragedy, Cleo longs to be able to turn back time. With her new friend Paul and a mysterious map, Cleo sets off on a quest to find a magic clock that has been missing since the 1920s. Berlin is bursting with zany characters and urban legends, where Cleo seeks her heart’s desire. Using stop-motion techniques and magic realism, Germany’s capital truly shines in this romantic adventure. Contains brief scenes of nudity.
