Unlike most recent movies, "3° kälter" prioritizes internal to external development which makes it a slow moving but intense treat. If you go and see it, you should be prepared for an almost fatalist close-up study on love, loneliness and despair. With few exceptions, the film paints a rather grim picture of human nature and relationship. Maybe Hoffmeister is no second Ingmar Bergmann (or isn't yet, if Bergmann is ever to be matched ), but his film remains very well-elaborate and poignant. Probably too heavy to be a commercial success, this movie will leave a deep impression among those who are willing to engage with it.
