Well, after having seen the Metropolis and Cabinet of Doctor Caligari, I thought the Germans cannot surprise me further with great films (and those movies are ooold). Der Mondscheintarif is much newer, has nothing to do with crazy doctors, like Caligari. There is a doctor, but young and handsome, and there is Cora, fittingly surnamed Huebsch (meaning "pretty" in German). She is looking for love, she finds it and then normal rules of dating come into play. This movie is remarkable for its plot. Finally, a movie about relationships from a true woman's point of view. This woman likes single life, likes sex, fun, friends, and in light of a new relationship is dumb-founded. And this truthfulness (wonderful feature of only German films today) adds spice, flavor, chic, whatever you call it that makes a good movie great. Watch it. This IS Oscar material, but trust me, it'll never get one.
