I discovered this gem on YouTube and Vimeo after a seeing report about it on Deutsche Welle TV. You can view it in several quality levels - the best is Full Screen 720p High Definition if your internet bandwidth is good enough. The film is 9 minutes long and has been viewed about 350,000 (as of December 3, 2010).

Here's film maker Philipp Beuter's note about this video:

Creator's Note:

I dedicate this film to Berlin where I have been living for 19 years now. While the architecture of Berlin is stunningly beautiful, only its inhabitants make Berlin the unique city that it is. In every corner there is something new to discover. And the best thing to do is to film it.

Filmed with my beloved Sony HC9. Edited with Sony Vegas Pro 9.The miniature effect is called tilt-shift, which originates from a particular lens that was used to photograph architecture. The miniature effect is a by-product of that. It can also be achieved by digital postprocessing. Music: “Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2” by Franz Liszt
