Storyline

Eben noch hatte sich Paula (Alexandra Maria Lara) auf ihrem Abiball ihr Leben so wundervoll ausgemalt. Gemeinsam mit dem Freund Max (Wotan Wilke Möhring) das Provinznest Struvensiel verlassen. Die Welt erkunden. Glücklich sein. Doch die Realität schaut anders aus. Am Tag, als es endlich losgehen sollte, wartet sie vergeblich auf Max. Anstatt ihren Traummann zu heiraten, gerät sie an den Versicherungsvertreter Edgar (Peter Lohmeyer). Anstatt Abenteuer zu erleben, arbeitet sie halbtags in der Stadtbücherei. Erst zehn Jahre nach dem Abiball trifft sie auf einem Klassentreffen Max wieder. Eine Begegnung, die für frischen Wind in ihrem Alltagstrott sorgen sollte.

Zur Bildergalerie Auch wenn sich Max zunächst die hoch verdiente, schallende Backpfeife einfängt, sind sich die beiden sofort wieder sympathisch. So sympathisch sogar, dass Paula sich dazu entschließt, ihren Turnbeutelvergesser Edgar zuhause sitzen zu lassen und sich auf den Weg nach Hamburg macht, um Max zu besuchen. Als sie dort ...

German romantic thriller comedy
29 December 2004 | by rodo-hSee all my reviews

This is one of the rare examples of a German romantic thriller comedy. And in general it works very well. Its predominant tone is comedic and it is really funny, esp. because the author, Martin Rauhaus, wrote lots of witty dialogue and good humorous characters. It has a tight – though foreseeable – thriller plot. In the action scenes director Mark Schlichter proves once again his strong sense of timing, pacing and creative visualization. And it has also fine romantic scenes which work very well because the two lead actors, Alexandra Maria Lara and Wotan Wilke Moehring, get on very well with each other. I just would have loved to see more romance in the plot and to watch more of them as a couple of a romantic comedy made for each other and prevented to come together by the villains of the thriller plot.
