Enthralling.... Thank you Tom Tykwer for making this film!
Odd how everyone's perception of film is different. I thought this film was fantastic - good acting and characters, fantastic story, beautiful camerawork, excellent music.... etc etc
This film shows that you can still make a unique, original film without stuffing EVERYTHING down the viewers throat. It has the most excellent circularity to it where everyone gets exactly what is coming to them. It is funny, dark, depressing, enthralling, and overall, satisfying.
