I went to see the movie without any expectations, during the Montreal World Film Festival. What can someone expect from a young director, with a young crew, right? What I found out surprised me, and my friends whom I brought back with me to see the movie for themselves. The finesse, the depth of each line, the lightness of small gestures, combined with an impeccable camera technique, gave a wonderful result. Among all the young creators and participants in this movie, the director Stefan Westerwelle definitely knew how to attract the spectator into the show! Michael Gempart does a great part, down to the smallest detail. His role is more of a meditation, a spoken one... Leander Lichti also plays with easiness a character that is quite difficult to portray. The pair reflects very well the incongruence of two ages. My only regret with regard to the movie is that it didn't get any prize at the festival in Montreal. I can't wait for the DVD to come out!
