Beautifully crafted
25 April 2009 | by See all my reviews

Having watched this film a few times, I find the same sense of sadness yet ultimately optimism hits you every time. It is a beautifully crafted little gem telling it's story with humour, pathos and above all hope. Well worth the effort to watch. I have watched it in the original and even as a non German speaker, the story comes through. It makes an interesting counterpoint piece to 'Inside I'm Dancing'. The acting is high quality, the photography clear and no effort is made to patronise the audience, nor does it overstate the emotional range it covers. It is full of well known young actors whose faces will be familiar to many. Worth spending an evening on anytime.
