Is it a romance? Is it a sci-fi thriller? This movie keeps you guessing all the way through, while we watch a distraught and morbid Fanny Fink bloom via the bumbling shenanigans of the next door palm reader. Will the space ship return? Is there a space ship? Will Fanny Fink find love? This may be all in German, but the subtitles are extremely accurate in meaning and mood, and the movie flows with humor and grace. And after the movie, you can go have a "Tasse Kaffee" with that person you've been meaning to get to know. A flat out wonderful movie, that will give you pause to cogitate afterward on life, death and ET.
