Story about a guy that runs over a boy and flees. But the guilt stays and makes some dramatical changes in him...
The cast was great. Great acting. Specially the main two actors. The story sour-sweet, lovely. Thought the ending wasn't what I expected as from the story flow. I expected something more sophisticated. A peak. But it just flowed away as it was flowing the whole time...actually a great move. Thought the whole movie has a simplicity touch. That makes the scenes even more powerful and brings out the acting of the actors. And as said they were great! The photography is nothing special but worth mention it. Really matches the theme simple but catchy in a fresh way.
A fresh breath from Germany which hasn't made a lot of good movies in the last decade. Really worth seeing it.
