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
Til's movie is definitely sweet, entertaining and down-right funny. It is as German as I've seem a movie, and it's humour is much more subtle and slowly delivered than most of what Holiwood has to offer. The amber colour of the cinematography gives it both a timelessness and a romantic touch. We see Germany as it is, and a most unlikely love story taking place before our eyes.
A movie about how absurd can a moment in life be, how sometimes we all need to have a bit of craziness and foolishness in order to make it through the madness of normal life.
Not a classic, but a good enjoyable evening.
