I was lucky enough to catch this gem of a movie on Norwegian television some time back, which probably made it much easier for me as it was subbed in my language, as opposed to many others who have watched this in various dubbed versions.
Anyway, this German movie in short revolves around a brother and a sister who rarely gets to see each other, except for one summer when they spend all their time together out of sheer boredom. During this time, their sibling love starts to grow deeper, and before you know it, they are boyfriend/girlfriend. After a while, of course, they break the ultimate taboo about sibling incest, but the whole theme is handled so delicately and so beautifully that you come to understand and sympathize with the siblings in their actions.
I think the movie tries to explore how a relationship like this can develop and mature, and in that they really succeed. Considering the budget of this made-for-TV movie, its amazing what they have been able to do with it.
The story is rock solid, the actors are very good and portray their characters with ease (especially the siblings who do such a wonderful job), and in the end its well worth your time to watch. Anyone who likes a movie that actually have a deeper meaning and a solid story should check this movie out. You will not be disappointed.
Top notch and world class. 10/10.
