Storyline

Lynn (22) lives with her brother in Berlin. There she enjoys the advantages of family life, without really feeling involved in it. She does not have any precise aim in life, but manages to awaken the interest of many people with her direct and spontaneous character. Her boyfriend David is very different: he is entirely engrossed in his very disciplined swimming training for the world championships. David does not intend to allow himself to be distracted by the complicating factors of a relationship with Lynn. When Lynn, working behind the till of restaurant, meets the Japanese student Koji, everything gets more complicated. They can't exchange many words, but it is soon clear that their moments together mean a lot to both of them. Written by Bastiaan van Gestel

Atmosphere
13 March 2004 | by paulgoerresSee all my reviews

The film being too slow, as said before me, never bothered me. I liked the pace of the movie and the silence. Actually, most scenes were powerful because nothing was said at all. Had there been more dialogue, the internal struggling by the main characters might have been less visible, obscured by words. This is what a good movie is about, in my opinion: seeing and feeling what goes on in people's minds, what they individually long for and what their expectations of 'the other' are. How people do not meet up to expectations and the difficulty of relations between them is the basis for so many movies, but a viable one. Set against the background of an unpersonal, artificial urban environment somewhere in the '00s, a sense of aimlesness and alianation lies underneath it all. I love the atmosphere, an after-summer Berlin evening; nice camera work. Moving.
