Movie Info

Popular German actor Daniel Brühl plays David Kern, a socially awkward waiter who works a dead end job in a chic cafe. One day he stumbles upon the biggest break of his life, an unpublished manuscript which he finds in a jammed nightstand drawer. He reads the manuscript, and thinking there might be something to it, claims it as his own in order to impress Marie, a pretty literature student who frequents the cafe. The manuscript turns out to be a lost masterpiece. Marie is quite taken with this stunning new writer, and is not content to let the hefty document go unpublished, much to David's dismay.

Critic Reviews for Lila, Lila

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3)

The stolen-authorship premise is popular ... But "Lila, Lila" fails to make witty use of the idea.

Alain Gsponer's well-crafted romantic comedy... glides along on the sheer power of rising German star Daniel Bruhl's boyish charm.
