Cast[edit]

Production[edit]

It was announced in October 2017 that filming had begun on the latest instalment of the Cities of Love series, and would conclude in November. Amongst the announced cast included Helen Mirren, Keira Knightley, Jim Sturgess, Mickey Rourke, and Diego Luna.[1] Emily Beecham was announced as being cast in June 2018.[2] A trailer shared by Dianna Agron, who stars in and directs a segment of the film, revealed the involvements of Luke Wilson, Charlotte Le Bon and Iwan Rheon.[3]

Saban Films acquired the distribution rights for the film in May 2018.[4]

In February, 2019 renowned artist Ai Weiwei claimed that his section of Berlin, I Love You was cut due to pressure from China's government. "The reason we were given for the episode’s removal [..] was that my political status had made it difficult for the production team."[5]

Reception[edit]

The film currently has an 17% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes based on 11 reviews.
