This movie was not very romantic or funny, but it got one point across wonderfully- waiting for the one who got away will screw you over (and all those eligible human bodies around you). In this case, it's the guy that pines over his idyllic first love... in Germany!! Oh so romantic!.. the gray.. dark blue.. coal smelling.. EAST Germany. ;) Nevertheless, your night vision adjusts and the movie gets better.
I really appreciate that the movie deals with men's issues, such as the way they view romantic relationships and how they, even though it's hard to admit, contract and repeat unhealthy patterns in their life. Not the glamorous Haley-Davidson, Mr. Jack Daniels type of masculinity, but the one that lurks beneath the Common Jerk, who (as we all know) cries at night into his pillow, trapped inside his own head.
In essence,this film is for both blocks&birds.. but you gotta to be ready for the presentation. It dissects most common Bf/Gf types and serves them up like a tech assistant at a biology lab. Imagine sugar-free, sunshine-free version of "Before the Sunset" as told by a guy who could actually exist... I loved it.
