Was nützt die Liebe in Gedanken / Love in Thoughts (2004)

Based on a true story and set in 1920s Berlin, this is a story of a suicide pact made by friends Günther (August Diehl) and Paul (Daniel Brühl), who are locked in a Shakespearean love quadrangle with the beautiful and unattainable Hilde and scoundrel Hans. Somewhere between Midsummer Night’s Dream and Spring Awakening, we learn how the delusion of youth, living for a fleeting moment of euphoria, is bound to end in tragedy.
