I was very touched. This may be because marriage fight is one of the main topics. It was great how characters that have an obvious "flaw" or "tick" fight for their happiness but struggle and fail so much at times. Problem was the actors are so well-known in Germany that I wasn't completely convinced. Like Moritz Bleibtreu is just too warm and kind for a guy like that. Some questions were not answered. Especially about the wife, why didn't she love him anymore, why did she use to love him? Even the filmmaker didn't know what the persons could have changed to make it easier. (Even the filmmaker let one person completely alone in the movie). I wasn't so touched by the Agnes, because I cannot relate to such a CALM person but I liked her and followed with mild(er) interest.
I liked it so much because it was REAL problems with an entertaining approach to present them.
