Terrific, gritty, unpretentious drama - small in the best sense
25 March 2003 | by azeemakSee all my reviews

I don't know what made me think of this film suddenly, as I saw it three years ago in the London German Film Week. The director was there, which added to the sense of occasion, and I remember being hugely impressed with the lead actress, who reminded me a bit of Emily Watson, not in terms of physical appearance, but in her honesty and lack of artifice.

I don't suppose this film will make many appearances on TV in the UK or USA, but if it does, I'd highly recommend it.
