Description: Deniz (Serpil Turhan) is an actress of Turkish ancestry in her early twenties who is living in Berlin. One day, she wakes up in an unusually good mood, and decides it's time she does something to improve her life. Over the course of the day, things begin to go her way -- she gets a job dubbing a French film into German, she parts ways with her listless boyfriend Jan (Florian Stetter), she has a promising audition with a film director (Hanns Zischler), and she keeps running into a handsome stranger named Diego (Bilge Bingul); they finally speak, and have a pleasant evening sharing dinner. The next morning, Deniz wakes to what appears to be another good day. Thomas Arslan's subtle, character-driven approach in Der Schone Tag shows the influence of Eric Rohmer, to whom Arslan nods in the dubbing sequence, in which his characters are recording a new dialogue track to Rohmer's Conte d'ete.~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
