Wow
18 March 2006 | by (Austria, Vienna) – See all my reviews

"Das weiße Rauschen" is probably the first movie that succeeded in giving its audience insight into the tortured mind of a schizophrenic person. "A Beautiful Mind" hammed up the subject by combining it with a love story and mystery elements. This movie, however, is real. So real, that it's hard to watch at times. Director Hans Weingartner makes great usage of Dogma-style camera and avoids all movie clichés. With only a small cast and a low budget this movie comes as close to reality as it gets. It helps us understand this terrible sickness and its victims - the sick person himself, as well as his relatives and friends - without palliating anything. The whole cast is fantastic. Daniel Brühl's performance is just breath taking. He's probably the best German actor at the moment and definitely headed for an international career. All in all, "Das weiße Rauschen" is one of the best German movies I've seen so far. If you can get your hands on it, watch it!
