The next five blog post will be revealing, how you can upgrade your movie night. First of all, Törtchen - Made in Berlin will give you recipes for 5 snacks and I additionally will give you my Top 5 films for the perfect movie night.
As I am blogging about Berlin and publishing travel guides named BertaBerlin, I will only select movies which were filmed in Berlin. To create a arc of suspense, I will start from the very end of my Top 5.
Last but not least:
RUN LOLA RUN (1/5)
This movie is a German cult classic from 1998 directed by Tom Tykwer. The story follows a woman who needs to obtain 100,000 Deutsche Mark (yes , this were the times when we did not have Euro) in twenty minutes to save her boyfriend's life. As she is in a hurry, she is running through Berlin. We witness three ‘runs’, each in real time and unfolding from the same starting point, each offering a different outcome. This movie won well-deserved 26 awards and has to be a part of every movie night.
And here is the best snack to eat while watching this movie.
- Chop bittersweet chocolate and let it melt above a bain-marie.
- Put the marshmallow upright on a board or something similar.
- Then pour chocolate above it and press one salted pretzel in the chocolate.
What do you need?
75 g bittersweet chocolate
25 little salted pretzels
