★★★☆☆ The second film in the German Dreileben trilogy, Dominik Graf's Dreileben 2: Don't Follow Me Around (2011) is a very different creature to Christian Petzold's Beats Being Dead (2011), taking a more straightforward, politically-informed approach to narrative storytelling. Whilst Petzold's effort focused on the lives of Dreileben's youth, Graf's contribution to the project explores the love lives of three affluent middle-class individuals, whilst the hunt for the fugitive sex offender Molesch (Stefan Kurt) continues.
This time around, the focus lies on single mother Johanna (Jeanette Hain), a police psychologist brought in to help in the search for Molesch. Staying with her old university friend and Dreileben resident Vera (Susanne Wolff) and her novelist husband Bruno (Misel Maticevic), their nights soon turn into wine-fuelled reminiscing sessions. It quickly transpires that the two friends were once both infatuated by the same man, and an unconventional love triangle soon re-emerges from the girls' past. »
