Too good, to be German...
25 October 2004 | by (Berlin) – See all my reviews

I rated more then 550 movies now and only gave one movie 10 points before, this is my second. I saw nearly all movies from the top250, David Lynch or with great actors like Kevin Spacey, Dennis Hopper or Edward Norton.

But I have to say that only "Eternal Sunshine of a spotless Mind" could touch me in this way before. I was so moved by this clever and intelligent story, this three ways of development. I was so moved by this great actors (I never saw Katja Riemann so unleashed), this fantastic camera, this mood music and the inventive locations.

What I really enjoyed, was to see a perfect cast and that every actor has opened himself so wide. Agnes himself wasn't that interesting but a good path between this family relations. My favorite plot line was Hans Jörgs, it was just real and honest, absolutely great acting.

I only can recommend this movie. And as i left the theater I thought, that I never would have German movies trusted this.
