The duration of “Waiting for Angelina," directed by Hans-Christoph Blumenberg, is set on a rooftop in the city-centre that overlooks a building which was said to be where Pitt and Jolie would live.
The main characters are a paparazzo waiting to get the shots of a life-time, and a fan of Angelina Jolie, who wants photos of her to prove his worth to his ex-girlfriend.
The film shows the developing relationship between the two men as they talk about why they are on the terrace waiting for the actress – when neither of them have a right to be there because it belongs to a dentist who is on holiday.
German actor Florian Lukas, who plays the paparazzo and, said he was glad not to be of interest to paparazzi himself.
“Thankfully I am not Brad Pitt. No one is interested in what I do. I also try not to provoke this kind of thing and do not put myself out there in public. I don’t want anyone to follow me - that would just make me paranoid.”
When asked whether he knew if Pitt or Jolie had heard of the film he said, “I don’t know, but I can’t imagine they have.”
“It’s unlikely,” said Lukas. “And the film plays with the concept of their elusiveness.”
