A long weekend in the Del Amitri world
18 June 2007 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

As usual, all the other actors' best efforts are dwarfed by Karoline Eichhorn's stunning performance. Like Katrin, Eichhorn's character in her last big-screen outing ("A Map of the Heart"), Laura is a troubled thirty-something with pain and regret gnawing at her self-esteem. But where Katrin went wild with a random under-age felon, Laura takes it out on the ones she loves. A few hours into the summer vacation at her parents' ramshackle countryside place, she passes out insults and hard times to her husband and her sister in equal measure, with extra acid reserved for her mom. In many ways, the setting of a troubled family in rural seclusion resembles Stefan Krohmer's 2006 drama "Sommer 04". But this one is set in the Del Amitri world, where nothing ever happens. The big plot bang that shook the family's foundations in "Sommer 04" never bursts in "Ferien". Instead, a series of small, unfortunate incidents eats away at everyone's happiness. Until the needle returns to the start of the song.
