Inspired by Billy Wilder's "People On Sunday" & Richard Linklater's "SLACKER", Playtime ("Spielzeit") is a seamless journey through the lives of German youth on a Sunday afternoon. Jan (Jan Müller) awaits his date with Matilda (Marylu Poolman). But when Matilda shows up with Andy (Markus Klauk), Jan realizes she has more in mind for their afternoon together. Their rendezvous is quickly interrupted by a group of children who poke fun at Andy’s shortcomings. Finally, one of the boys (Tim Lingens) gets lost in his imagination as the sun sets on this ordinary Sunday experienced through extraordinary lives.
