The Rhino And The Dragonfly
Ada, a young writer, and Nino, an aging screen star are stranded in a luxurious hotel for the night. Killing time at the hotel bar, they begin to engage each other in amusing and sometimes bizarre role-playing games. Their views on life could not be more different, but these contradictions are exactly what makes them more and more interested in each other. Ada intentionally asks him provocative questions about old age and Nino senses that he will not experience many more evenings like this in his lifetime. It is an extraordinary night for both of them, full of questions they would never have posed under different circumstances. A rare intimacy develops during their chance meeting and when morning breaks they part, safe in the know-ledge that the night has enriched them both.
Mario Adorf and Fritzi Haberlandt demonstrate their immensely versatile acting talent in this intelligent and humorous story.
