19 August 1999 | by (Cologne, Germany) – See all my reviews

German director Percy Adlon and actress Marianne Sägebrecht received first major international acclaim for their first collaboration, an extremely stylish and strange, but also charming and unique love story between a unglamorous, overweight female mortician who falls for a naive subway conductor. Though after a while Adlons unusual cinematic visuals turn from original to annoying and in the last third the story takes a bizarre and frustrating change, Adlons intriguing vision of modern-day-relationships and the fine performances, especially by the attractive Sägebrecht keeps the movie going.
