Ever since Run Lola Run raced across the Atlantic and rang in a new era in German filmmaking, Teutonic comedy has ceased to be an oxymoron. A classic romance, In July takes us from Hamburg, Germany, crosses into Austria, continues from Hungary to Romania and finally to Istanbul, Turkey over the breathtaking course of 100 minutes. The film, directed by German-born Turk Fatih Akin, is a vibrantly photographed journey set against the decidedly multicultural backdrop of Central and Eastern Europe, in which unrequited love, a stolen passport and 5 different countries and languages play the leads. 
Daniel (Moritz Bleibtreu, Lola's wayward boyfriend in Run Lola Run) is a young physics teacher in Hamburg who plays life by the rules. His students ridicule him, bartenders ignore him, and every night he walks home to a perfectly empty Ikea-furnished apartment. But his drab existence is about to change-he falls head over heels in love with a beautiful Turkish girl named Melek and spontaneously decides to follow her to Istanbul. On his way East, Daniel discovers a new self and learns to truly fight for his happiness, even as he gets high on drugs for the first time, gets beaten up, is seduced, robbed, and finally busted by Turkish borderguards. Daniel's wild odyssey is shared by Juli (the stunning Christiane Paul), a young woman hungry for life who predicts Daniel will soon find his one true love. But until then, the two must conquer Europe, by truck, car, bus, boat and foot and find out on the way that the laws of physics don't always apply.
