A beautiful summer’s day in Aranjuez, Spain. A garden and a terrace. A man and a woman sit at a table beneath the trees, conducting a conversation about their sexual experiences, memories of childhood, the essence of summer, and the differences between the male and the female. Their words illustrate the variance between the masculine and feminine perceptions of the world.

Wenders has based his intimate drama on a screenplay by Peter Handke (who also worked on Wings of Desire). The film focuses on the age-old topic of the man-woman relationship, their implicit, untold desires and passions, fleshed out in a poetic dialogue in the middle of summer. Rather unconventional in such a chamber-like work is the use of 3D technology, which Wenders had previously tried out in his dance documentary Pina. Last month, The Beautiful Days of Aranjuez was screened within the main competition of the Venice Film Festival. Hence, the Be2Can audience are afforded a unique opportunity to see it even before it has been started to be distributed globally.
