Wende is simply stunning in this movie about love, and the emptiness is leaves behind when love's gone. The atmosphere is somewhat dark, but this fits the volatile nature of the character played by Wende. The film is also not too emotional / dramatic. The balance between drama and realism is always there it seemed to me. It really doesn't make sense to describe the movie any further, because the story itself is quite small. The characters and strong acting make it bigger than the story itself. Go see this movie at home or in a small theater. This does not fit big cinemas, due to the nature of this film. If you like small-drama / road-movies, then this will certainly fit your taste.
