Storyline

Torge is a good looking, popular teenager, self confident and known for his sexual conquests in his town, an example of the "nice but macho" guy from a small Western European town, endowed with exceptional social skills. He is usually the leader of is circle of friends, atracting others to the group. All of this, however, changes when he loses his leg in an accident. His difficulty with his new handicap makes him cynical and bitter. As a result, he plunges deep into emotional conflicts which threaten to destroy him. Even Lisa, long in love with him, keeps her distance, as do all of his friends. But as Torge realizes that losing a limb is not as bad as losing his friends, he starts to come to terms with his handicap, and live with his condition. Written by Gonz30

Great movie
10 June 2003 | by (Gilbert, Arizona) – See all my reviews

I saw this flick in Germany, it was great, I only understood about 1/20 of the language, but the actors emotions are great and it really a sweet movie about the changes life brings and how we deal with them. It is probably considered a "chick-flick" but I think guys would like it and relate. I hope it gets released here in the states subtitled.
