Storyline

Vera Kemp, heiress of an industrial enterprise, lives in an apparently perfect world. While she doesn't care for big business, her husband Manfred runs the company. However, she learns about his affair with a younger woman and tries to save her marriage. During a vacation in Italy, Manfred and their son Max die in a road accident. Vera nearly despairs of her grief and, even worse, recognizes that her whole life has been a lie. Andreas Wolgast, a former employee, is the only one who supports her fight for the company and against her caballing family... Written by fippi2000

Amazing
19 July 2004 | by jandewittSee all my reviews

This most unusual story, which, in lesser hand, might have flopped all the way, is brought to live by the luminous Martina Gedeck, surely Germany's most accomplished modern actress.

The highly literate script tells the grim tale of a pampered woman, who not only looses her husband and son in an accident but nearly also her mind. Step by step she tries to rebuild her shattered life and finally finds new happiness in the arms of handsome Tim Bergmann (though I must admit that Mister Bergmann is almost too pretty for the part).

What on paper sounds like a Peg's Papers novel to catch between hair dryer and beauty parlor is made into an absorbing saga of love, despair, faith, strength and, above all, hope.
