Weird and Erotic Triangle of Love
29 July 2004 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In Berlin, in the Christmas eve, Julia (Maria Schrader) is alone, divided between the love for her mate Christian (Mark Schlichter) and the lust for her lover Frank (Jürgen Vogel). Christian is a cop and a sensitive and unsecured man, who has just decided to leave Julia and traveled alone to Paris. However, once in Paris, he misses Julia, and phones many times along the Christmas night to her. Frank is not brilliant, is unable to read a Stephen King's novel, but he is a sex machine in bed, giving sexual pleasure to Julia. Julia seems to be decided to break with Frank and stay with Christian, but her sexual desire does not allow her to come up to a decision. This weird and erotic German movie about a triangle of love has good performances and direction, but the story does not work very well. `Sexy Lover' has the same premise (a woman dating more than one man, having troubles to decide who would be the `man of her life'), and is an excellent black humor movie. The genre of `Stille Nacht' is not well defined, and in the end, it is lost among erotic, romance, drama and comedy. Having a better screenplay, it could have been a great movie. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): `Confissões na Noite' (`Confessions in the Night')
