Adam and Eden fell in love as teens despite the fact that they live on twinned worlds with gravities that pull in opposite directions. Ten years after a forced separation, Adam sets out on a dangerous quest to reconnect with his love.
It's a while since I saw the movie but I still remember a lot of images and the above all the feeling. I grew up in the eastern part of Berlin but life in Munich (in the former western part) now for most of my life. And this movie gave me a strange feeling of home. I guess it's the way people look, talk, dress, just behave and be with each other. This film for sure not is contemporary, it might even be old fashioned and nostalgic, but this not necessarily is bad. Beside this very personal and subjective view, I think it's a pretty good movie. It's about emotions, but with a cold distant. It's about the change of society, which has just begun and the characters do not know yet, if they will have a place there when it's over. It's about meaning and dreams. Actually the whole movie seems to be like a variation of the book "The Unbearable Lightness of Being", because it takes up lots of it's thoughts and images. And it's really beautiful to watch.
