Ben Stiller's latest movie has premiered at the Berlin Film Festival.
The Meet The Parents actor stars as a man seeking a way out of a midlife crisis in director Noah Baumbach's movie Greenberg.
The 44-year-old said ahead of the movie's premiere that his character "for a long time has felt like he had it all ahead of him and is really coming up against the fact that he doesn't".
He added: "I think that's just a part of being this age."
Stiller plays a fortysomething man housesitting his brother's Hollywood home and struggling to reconnect with old friends.
He is drawn into a relationship with his brother's personal assistant, played by Greta Gerwig.
Baumbach wrote and directed 2005's The Squid And The Whale.
The new film is one of 20 in the Berlin festival's main competition.
