'Only man kills out of hate, the animal kills out of love'

Ken Wilber

Have you fallen in love with me?

You are lying!

I've found out, that my urge,

my lust to kill is connected to certain star constellations.

It's like a vampire. The fuller

the moon, the bigger the lust.

Also with certain aspects with the planet Pluto,

the lust gets bigger and bigger.

The planet has been discovered,

just before the rise of fascism.

In astrology, the planet stands for the

deep hidden unsocial in the human being,

which can take absolute might over a

person and is able to dominate it.

...need to dig deeper.

Maybe I can find out a certain pattern

to learn to control the lust.

Hi, this is Nick.

I've just seen your announcement,

that you are looking for a roommate.

Is the room still available?

OK.Then I'll come over.

I'm Nick!

Phillip! Come in!


I'm gonna show you the room. Here it is!

What do you do for living?

I'm studying.

What are you studying?

International Economics.

But you didn't come here to study, did you?

Haven't they started with the terms already?


I'm looking for a holiday at for my father.

Ah. I see.

And you?What do you do for living?

I'm a photographer.

Ah, cool.

Have you been seeing other rooms?

Yes, but I haven't decided yet.

You know what...

for my sake, you can have the room.


We've also got a roof terrace!

- Wow.

- Not bad, eh?

I just found a roommate.

I don't know, I've had a good feeling about him.

Why don't you come around for dinner

tonight and have a look at him!

Do you think he's coming?

I can't wait to see him!

Wait, someone's coming.

Tell me something about your play.

Well, it's about a couple.

She's a gallery owner and he's a police officer and...

Hello, good evening!

This is Nick.

This is Lilli, a friend of mine.

This looks delicious.

Do you wanna eat something?

No, I didn't mean it like this. I've already eaten.

But there's enough. Come on, let us invite you!


So, Phillip told me, you are looking

for a condominium here in Berlin?!

Well, not for me. I'm looking for one for my father.

He's looking for a at, which he can offer to sublet.

For a lot of money...

Yes, for a lot of money.

I don't think Berlin will remain as it is now.

The gentrification can come really quickly, I reckon.

It is here already.

You just need to go to Neuklln or Kreuzberg.

But the tourists are good for the city, tho.

You think so?

I think they bug.

Well, probably it's the first time that

berlin became an international city.

I mean, a few years ago, the

only dialects you heard,

were only German dialects.

For that matter, I prefer the "broken

English" you can hear everywhere now.

There is always advantages and disadvantages...

and what are you doing here in Berlin?

I'm an actress...

well, I'm learning how to be one.

That means I shouldn't believe, what you are saying...

so you are just pretending?

Or is this just a prejudice?

This is indeed a prejudice.

Good actors do not pretend.

What are they doing then?

They show how people really are,

behind all their facades and masks.

Yes, beautiful. Maybe the chin a bit down.. .

that's almost too much...that's it...

Thank you very much, that was great!

- Thank you, bye!

- Bye!

Hey, are you working?

Yes, hey!

May I have a look at some pictures?

Do you only take pictures of men?

Hmhm. Only men.

But I do have a girlfriend, if it calms you.

Is it Lilli?

No, it's not Lilli.

My girlfriend is in Nicaragua at the moment.

- Do you wanna see her?

- Sure.

Here, have a look.

Ok.That's enough.
