This is what a film looks like if the people making it want to come up with something artistic, but just do not have the talent. It was written and directed by the actress who played Christiane F. back in 1981 and Tom Tykwer's regular cinematographer who also worked on Cloud Atlas for example. But both should really stick to their respective fields and not return behind the camera again. By the way, Potente was together with Tykwer for a long time, so that's probably why she starred in this film here, even if her popularity was already slowing down a bit almost 10 years ago when this was made. I believe she is really attractive and also a good actress, but she never came close again to her success with "Lola rennt". The male lead actor here is Wotan Wilke Möhring, actually one of Germany's most known lead actors in 2015 and definitely more popular now than when this was made. I do not really want to talk about the story in this short film. The essential word to describe it would probably be grief. But the action and script is so confusing and all over the place that even these two fairly talented lead actors cannot save these 14 minutes. Not recommended.
