Synopsis by Mark Deming

A new wrinkle in the eternal battle between good and evil forms the basis for the comedy Liebe Deine Naechste!/Love Your Neighbor!. Lt. Josephine (Lea Mornar) is a new soldier with the Salvation Army, and she's sent on a mission to save souls and do good works in Berlin, paired with her new associate, Lt. Isolde (Heike Makatsch). Berlin proves to be bigger, dirtier and more frightening than they expected, and the mission where they stay is an ominous hovel populated by alcoholic ne'er-do-wells. Not long after they arrive, the pair encounter Tristan (Moritz Bleibtreu), a powerful and morally-elastic management consultant who takes one look at Jospehine and immediately sees her as a piece of property he'd like to acquire. So will evil triumph over virtue -- specifically Josephine's virtue? Liebe Deine Naechste!/Love Your Neighbor! was the third feature from noted German director Detlev Buck.
