Simple but exciting
3 April 2003 | by (Vienna, Austria) – See all my reviews

A man hits a young boy with his car and drives away. The kid's mother tries to find the man who killed her son. They meet. It's as simple as that, and Christian Petzold tells the story in a quite simple way as well. Nevertheless, the film is full of suspense right until the end because of course everybody wants to know whether she finds out about him having done it or not. I won't tell you either, so you can still go and see the movie!

What enhances the suspense is that only in the last few minutes, a musical score can be heard. Up to these last scenes, the soundtrack displays only natural sounds as well as the dialogues which is always quiet, often whispered.

Sometimes I found the dialogues too uninspired and also too Hollywood-drama-like and not realistic. But I guess that is what B pictures are like.
