WALTER (41) is planning on writing a book about German entrepreneurs. On a spring day he meets the physics student AGNES (28). He is fascinated by her extreme attitude towards life. After reading some of his short stories, Agnes proposes that he writes a story about her. Their love story already begins on their first date. But after a while, Walter gets irritated, because Agnes follows the picture he draws of her in real life. Events turn over and Walter discovers that there can only be one ending to his story - but this ending could cost him their relationship and it could also cost Agnes' life.
When puppy love ends and happiness isn't good enough to keep one satisfied.
Agnes is a drama romance with a few twists and turns which can remind one of Ruby Sparks or Vanilla Sky, as reality conflicts with a novel being written about a couple's relationship. The story surrounds a male writer who meets an irresistible and free spirited woman named Agnes. Although he has little experience in writing novels, he uses new found inspiration to create a story based on their relationship. Once he's arrived at present day, the lines between reality and fiction become blurred. What he wants and what really happens between the two can be confusing at times for both he and the viewer. It could have done a better job of creating more tension and dread for the climax which felt rushed, but I honestly can't think of anything else that took me out of the moment. Overall it feels fresh and genuine and is deserving of a watch if you enjoy drama heavy Romances with a somewhat reality bending story line.
