Alexandra Maria Lara,
Nick Keller has issues in keeping a job. In this first day as a janitor at a mental hospital he gets fired. However, it is then when he meets Leila, a troubled young woman that doesn't wear any shoes, and prevents her from hanging herself. What he wouldn't expect, though, is for Leila to follow him home, which she does. She then refuses to leave his apartment and go back to the hospital. As Leila has been kept away from the world and the society, Nick engages into showing the world to the strange new girl. While trying not to lose his patience, he ends up falling for Leila.Written by
What happens if a loser, who can't keep a job, doesn't remember the name of the girl he last slept with and has some trouble with his family meets a 25-year-old who had been kept inside by her mother for 19 years and tries to kill herself? Nick, the loser, takes Leila on a trip to his parents and accidentally he falls in love. Well, I won't tell more, and I won't spoil this because you really can't tell whether it's going to be a happy ending or not. Of course this movie made me cry but it's great that in the next scenes you can laugh again...laughing in tears, one of the greatest feelings. Til Schweiger did a great job directing it (the movie being dedicated to his kids) and playing Nick. I think it's the greatest German movie within year, and maybe the best without Nazis and WWII.
