I enjoyed watching this movie as it had all the ingredients of a wonderful soap. Coming from the 3rd world, I find it intriguing that soaps, whether Asian, American, Latin American, or in this case, German (!)--are mainly alike.

Its conclusion is somewhat unconventional--not the usual prince and princess riding into the sunset but it holds the same promises that soaps do whether you are watching it in California or Mexico or Manila.
