It's cold, I'm tired, my body is crashing ... and it's only day three. So far I've seen seven films here at the 57th Berlin International Film Festival, and I'm happy to report that almost all of them are worth the price of an admission ticket. Julie Delpy's 2 Days in Paris (which I saw this morning and will be filing a review of soon) was priceless and, by far, my favorite film from the past three days. However, my festival high came to an end this afternoon when I had to use every ounce of my mind, body and soul to sit through The Last Mimzy. With its boring plot, acting and lame fantasy elements, I have to say I'm glad it's the last Mimzy and not the first.

The streets around Potsdamer Platz and the Grand Hyatt (where, in case you weren't aware, is where all the deals are taking place) were buzzing come mid-afternoon when none other than Robert De Niro and Matt Damon (who are here promoting The Good Shepherd) shuffled into town. You'd think the most important people in the universe were arriving, as the streets were closed, the press area (located on the first floor of the Hyatt) was packed and all I wanted to do was get through a scheduled interview I had with the folks behind Itty Bitty Titty Committee -- which enjoyed its World Premiere in the fest's Panorama section last night -- and has, surprisingly, turned into one of the more buzzed-about films thus far.
