Nashorn im Galopp (Rhino Full Throttle)


Bruno is making his way through the city searching for its soul.

‘Rhino Full Throttle’ is a bizarre film about the soul of a city, Berlin. Erik Schmitt, director of the film, uses a unique style for its highly romantic yet funny story, a mixture of Stop Motion, plays with perspective, in-camera tricks and real life action scenes.

Bruno is making his way through the city searching for its soul. Driven by his curiosity, a challenging imagination and his wild reflection on reality he is lifting the old dusty curtain on the city‘s crusted perception. Bruno is collecting patterns, spaces and surfaces, showing us the city as we have never seen it before. Until the day he meets a mysterious girl called Vicky…

The shimmering and imaginative romantic style edges the type of film we are used to seeing by Michel Gondry, in something like Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind or The Science of Sleep. The charming film will lift you off your feet and make you fall in love with the space and perspective a city has to offer.

Watch the making of this brilliant film
