A story about Love and Desire
7 April 2004 | by Wilde_childSee all my reviews

On a Christmas night, Julia, in her Berlin flat, is torn between her boyfriend Christian, who argues with her on the phone from a hotel room in Paris; and Frank, to whom she is terribly attracted but can't relate to intellectually. This love triangle becomes a dangerous game, in which a bunch of conflicting emotions makes Julia reason her relationship with the two men.

A daring, intense, erotic film, claustrophobic-like at times, masterfully directed by Dani Levy and featuring a wonderful performance by Maria Schrader.

My rating- 10 out of 10
