Goofs

A Saab 900 plays an important role in this film. For shooting they used more than one car. There is a long scene where the protagonists are driving along the country shot from different angles in which you can see that one car does have a sunroof and the other does not. So every view seconds the "outfit" of the car changes. See more »

"Life-affirming and exceptionally involving..."
10 September 2012 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

German screenwriter and director Ralf Huettner's eleventh feature film which was written by German actor, writer and singer Florian David Fitz, was screened in the German Cinema section at the 61st Berlin International Film Festival in 2011, was shot on locations in Germany and Italy and is a German production which was produced by German film producers Harald Kügler and Viola Jäger. It tells the story about Vincent, a 27-year-old man with Tourette's who recently lost his mother who told him on her deathbed that she wanted to go to the sea. After being sent to an institution by his busy father where he has to share room with a compulsive young man named Alexander, Vincent meets a young girl named Marie who has an eating disorder. Marie and Vincent finds a rare connection and driven by Vincent who wishes to bring his mother's urn to the sea, they and Alexander escape from the institution.

Finely and engagingly directed by German filmmaker Ralf Huettner, this finely paced and unsentimental fictional tale which is narrated from multiple viewpoints, draws a humane and mindful portrayal of a grief-stricken young man's journey to fulfill his mother's last wish and his relationship with an anorectic young woman. While notable for its naturalistic and atmospheric milieu depictions and the sterling cinematography by cinematographer Andreas Berger, this character-driven and dialog-driven independent film depicts several empathic studies of character and contains a great score by German composer Ralf Hildenbeutel and German electronic musician Stevie B-Zet.

This romantic, humorous, serious, very charming and universally appealing road-movie about interpersonal relations, love and identity, is impelled and reinforced by its cogent narrative structure, subtle character development, colorful characters, quick-witted dialog and the compelling and heartfelt acting performances by German actor Florian David Fitz, German actress Karoline Herfurth and German actor Johannes Allmayer, An exhilarating, life-affirming and exceptionally involving love-story which gained, among other awards, the German Film Award for Best Feature Film and Best Actor Florian David Fitz at the German Film Awards in 2011.
