Cleo (2019)


Can Cleo turn back time? It seems that misfortune has been haunting her loved ones since she was born. As a child, she is inspired by her imaginary friends, who include Albert Einstein and Marlene Dietrich. When they tell her of a mystical clock that can turn back time, she implores her father to embark on a treasure hunt; an endeavour that ends in tragedy. Twenty years later, she is determined to track down the clock, rewind time and save her parents.

In German with English subtitles | 1 hour 39 minutes
Rated as suitable for ages 6 and up by FSK, the German film rating system.


A modern Berlin fairytale.” Berliner Zeitung

The colourful streets of modern Berlin play host to a fantastical adventure in this inventive feature debut from Erik Schmitt. As 30-something protagonist Cleo (Marleen Lohse) hunts down a mysterious clock with the power to turn back time, her quest — both for treasure and for genuine human connection — may be a familiar journey, but Schmitt’s keen command of idiosyncratic detail and a charming central performance from Lohse ensure the route taken is both surprising and memorable.Screen Daily
