"wie feuer und flamme" is definitely a must-see film. the look and feel of the setting was very real, and the film's visual style enhanced the emotions evoked by the film's content. i liked that i was able to identify with the characters and their situations, yet still get swept away in the more romanticized dalliances. the director has an effective style that is easy to follow, and through skillful direction of her actors she tells a story that will bring a lump to your throat, a smile to your lips, and tears to your eyes. and on top of all that, you get to hear great music the whole way through. i loved this film.
