Trivia

When Felix sleeps at Gustav's house you can see an external shot of the house. It is exactly the house where Jason Bourne meets the former German Treadstone Agent in the second Bourne movie The Bourne Supremacy (2004). When he looks through the blinds he's standing at the exact spot where Bourne and the German agent had their fight for life and death. See more »

A German movie that's convincing and entertaining!
28 March 2006 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

The Movie tells the Story of Felix and Pola Sommerfeld, their divorce, their friends and their love.

In the beginning you might think, "oh no, a German movie" but as you see the credits in the beginning, you learn fast that the cast will proof you wrong.

For example Bastian Pastevka, known as a comedian from TV, always good for a laugh, is playing brilliantly the role of a frustrated husband. And he is able to convince you trough his facial expression, his ability to make you laugh and (what we hardly know from TV) his ability to make his character appear serious, sad and tragic. And it is played very convincing.

On the other hand there is Oliver Korittke, he shows us by playing the choleric boyfriend of a girl (whom he has to share with other man more then he likes) that he is a very skilled actor too.

All in all it's a very entertaining comedy with it's sad and tragic moments. A must to watch in my eyes.
