Different and that's fine
25 August 2008 | by cs-freakSee all my reviews

Watched it this morning and this is a nice film when you don't want to get up somehow. I really liked it because it is different to that standard Hollywood-Story. It's a German film and you know that from the beginning, but there are a lot that try to be like American ones and that is what makes them wretched. Have to watch a lot of these films, cause the agreement with my girlfriend is, one film for me one for her :) But this film I watched without her, spontaneously. It is funny, but not like a comedy with its easy and "a thousand times in every comedy seen jokes" and it is romantic, but not that hardcore sobstuff with ultra slushy music. It's not like the ones where you know what the end will be like. The two perspectives so one time from Adam's and then in Eva's, well done. And if you don't have the perfect relationship (even if you do have) with your girl or boy, guess it will make you think about it. Give it a chance and I bet you will be surprised.

Sorry for my English, know it's not perfect.
