Following "Mein letzter Film" with Hannelore Elsner and "Ein ganz gewöhnlicher Jude" with Ben Becker, "Valerie" with Franka Potente is the last entry in a trilogy of movie monologues produced by Hubertus Meyer-Burckhardt. The titular protagonist′s life takes place between Los Angeles and Berlin: she alternately works in the US or spends time with her boyfriend in Berlin. When the latter gets sick and falls into a coma, Valerie decides to stay in Berlin. Beforehand, she has to travel to LA one last time. For her time of absence, she wants to leave a video diary to be played at her boyfriend′s hospital bed. The day before her departure, she begins recording herself. Her monologue in front of the camera gets more and more emotional and personal, and through her narration, she relives all the highs and lows of their relationship.
