"Slow-paced and character-driven mystery..."
18 January 2012 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

The first part of "Dreileben", a loose trilogy based on a fictitious story about a murderer called Frank Molesch who escapes from a hospital in the rural village Dreileben in The Free State of Thuringia, is succeeded by "Don't Follow Me Around" (2011) and "One Minute Of Darkness" (2011). It was written and directed by German filmmaker Christian Petzold and tells the story about Johannes, a young and energetic hospital worker, and Ana, a vulnerable and free-spirited woman who works at a hotel and lives with her mother and her younger brother. Johannes and Ana meets and falls in love during a summer in Dreileben when the police is chasing an escaped murderer, but Ana's increasing devotion decreases their evolving relationship.

Christian Petzold's stylistic, perceptive and engaging directing is distinct in this slow-paced and character-driven mystery which is finely acted by German actor Jacob Matschenz and Bosnian actress Luna Mijovic as the promising young lovers Johannes and Ana. The brilliant use of sound and the visually noticeable cinematography by German cinematographer Hans Fromm reinforces the predominant and impending atmosphere in this romantic psychological thriller which is the most rigorously structured and minimalistic part of the Dreileben trilogy.
