i saw the film at the Seoul film festival where it also won the Jury Award. everybody was shocked and amazed by it somehow. long discussion after the screening with the director. not that you haven't seen anything like it before, but its well acted, well filmed and well told. i personally like how it explores its characters, building up to the climax of the last half an hour, the pace increasing and characters and story lines crashing. watch it yourself - you won't be disappointed. strange that a German director has to make such a film, but maybe it needs that objective distance for a realistic and true film like this one.
