So many languages...so many nationalities!
 
A truly European film...pity about the flimsy storyline.
 
This is a threesome with some dire acting - Teun Luijkx may be a damn fine-looking chap...alas, he can't act. The puppy-dog look can get you so far (he got the part)...but, that's as far as it goes.
 
Verenica Echegui does a scatty Penelope Cruz impersonation...it grates rather than ingratiates. And, Mark Waschke is a bit of a non-entity.
 
But...it's the direction and dialogue that really let this well-filmed film down. Television directors should remain in television...this is a clear cut case of ambition superceding ability.

The(ir) Blurb...

Every month a strange ritual takes place in Brussels. The European Parliament moves to its Strasbourg seat in 15 enormous trucks. A week later everything is moved back again. The romantic comedy &ME takes place against the backdrop of this desperate attempt to maintain European idealism. &ME tells the story of 24-year old law student Edurne who moves from Sitges to Brussels. On her first day at the European Parliament she collides violently with 40-year old German Eduard Schiller. Unlucky in love, homosexual Eduard has arrived in Brussels from Berlin to start a new life. Looking for happiness, he has decided to take a new path and look for a woman. Edurne and Eduard see the collision as the sign of a special relationship. L'amour c'est bizarre. Everything changes when they meet handsome 30-year old EC removal man Richard. A battle for Richard's love develops between Eduard and Edurne. The confrontation with the truth gives the threesome very different answers to the same question...
