I guess it is a fair assessment to call me a cynic. So it should be nor surprise that I wrote that topic line. I am aware there is a book (which is not on a shelve on my wall), that I haven't read. I can also imagine, that reading it might be more satisfying than actually seeing it. Especially considering the fact, there is a lot of voice over. Something people in film industry would call a total "no-go". But you have to break rules from time to time.
It fits the movie and the barriers are not only physical, but psychological too. And you don't have to think too much about to understand what the movie tries to tell you. You could wonder though, why there is no sign. And by that I mean an actual sign, that you can hang on "the wall". It might not have helped, especially since this is more a spiritual journey (or stay if you will), than anything else.
Performance wise there is nothing to be said, except: Great! Gedek might be one of Germanys finest.
