This is the first time I have seen a movie set in the extraordinary Spreewald, a wood-and-water landscape south-east of Berlin. In this remote and picturesque surroundings, a man of about 60 is living alone, doing some fishing, and - you can guess it - hiding from his past. Of course, the past crawls up to him in the shape of a young girl, and so step by step, we get to know what happened. Seems that as a young man, Boran has done a stupidity and without knowing it, spoiled the lives of several persons. Apart from the worn-off and quite predictable plot, the movie has some qualities. Wonderful actor Mathias Habich for example, strange but credible characters and the beautiful and unique setting - largely exploited by the camera. All in all a watchable little film.
