An older man and a young woman meet in a park. They seem to know each other but to not have been in touch for a while. Yuri wants to invite Sasha for supper, but has to get some money first. After he leaves her behind in a café, the situation gets out of control. Geburtstag is a story of revelation: In long, black and white shots it reveals the relationship of Yuri and Sasha, only to end in another farewell. The mystery of the film, however, echoes for a long time afterwards.

This film is part of the special program ]]>The Future of Cinema. Selected works from the German Film and Television Academy Berlin]]> and will be shown in DFFB Programm 1.
