Summary

The bear leaves Berlin. He's fed up. On the way, two Russian ladies - Anna and her daughter, Arisha - hire him as their driver. During the trip, a Santa Claus who cannot stand Christmas, and then a Vietnamese family, join the group whose destination is a spot by the sea. There, on the beach, lies a stone ring, which wants to be found.

Movie Reviews

However slightly contrived, this is a remarkable (literally) "fantastic" short by acclaimed director Wim Wenders (of Alice In The Cities fame) is once you've seen it, one you will not forget.

Just don't ask the obvious questions like "why would santa claus be fed up with christmas" and "how could a vietnamese and a russian family sing along to a european song on the radio" -- and you're fine..

Mixing humor with magic realism might look all too absurd - even too absorbing - to you, the look-and-feel of this gem has just too many charms to go unnoticed.
