During the break of the play, Adam joins Hanna outside. He brings 2 bottles of mineral water, hands one to Hanna and both take a sip while talking. Both bottles are already half-empty, presumably due to previous takes. See more »

Entertaining and profound menage-à-trois for adults
28 December 2010 | by (Mainz (near Frankfurt/Main), Germany) – See all my reviews

This one is a typical movie from Tom Tykwer, but one of his best. Is it constructed? Of course, it is fiction, paired with really good dialogue and performances. I don't know if it will be shown in English, but if you understand the language you should watch it in German. The movie is well crafted like one piece, everything fits perfectly together: the cinematography / the cutting, the music, the plot, the pace and the meaning. It has some scenes with black humour in it, but not too many. And although it deals with fundamental questions of life / death, relationships and sexual orientation, I left the cinema in an uplifted mood. Recommended for people who like Tom-Tykwer- or menage-à-trois-movies (e.g. "Threesome", "Jules and Jim").
