Wonderful film with back pictures of the remains of the war, almost no scenery but a deep and secret feeling of sorrow. The car is telling the story but humanity is involved in the philosophical Kerry of every character. You can see "normal" people behaving in normal ways under irrational circumstances. War is only behind of the story but you can see, smell and listen at the back of every detail . The last story, a sort of holy family (Mary, Joseph and a baby) are the future of Germany in a little and unknown village with a church. Wonderful piece of art! What a story without dark tones. I liked the couple of mixed races who sees the Kristalnacht
