Paul Hanganu loves two women. Adriana his wife and the mother of their daughter, the woman with whom he's shared the thrills of the past ten years, and Raluca the woman who has made him redefine himself. He has to leave one of them before Christmas.
One of the better German movies of this season. A story about a German reporter whose mother escapes from a nursing home struggling with her past and trying to find peace. Hannelore Elsner did an amazing job! I only know her from German TV but her acting was convincing and never over the top. Well, the Alzheimer story is something we already know from Julie Christie's "Away from her", which gave her an Oscar nod and Hannelore Elsner should at least win one of those German film prices. Juliane Koehler with a new hairdo wasn't bad either. We know her from excellent movies such as "Aimee and Jaguar", "Nowhere in Africa" or "Downfall". This one is definitely not one of her best but her acting was still good and she is one of my favorite German actresses. I wish I could see her in more international productions in the future. On the whole a very good cast and a convincing film.
