Storyline

Matthias, son of popular rural Lutheran pastor Oskar Brendel and his wife Karin, about to graduate without honors unlike his emigrated big brother, is a pubertal rebel and hopelessly in love with local Maren Grothe. After he picks a fight at the village fair with her flirt and storms off, Maren s found comatose under the watchtower. Missing, Matthias is the only suspect, making the clerical family generally mistrusted. Karin finds her son, whose innocence she believes, apprenticing carpentry on the island where his buddy loves with his father Volkmann. Matthias explains he ran having seen his father Oskar refused ending an affair with Maren, who jumped as suicide attempt. The Brendels consider the due consequences. Written by KGF Vissers

Distressed country-site community after a young girl dies of suicide
22 September 2006 | by h-fokkerSee all my reviews

Situated in Northern Germany at the North Sea, a family drama develops , after the son of a minister is falsely accused of having to do with the eventual death of the girl he loved. With great skill and empathy photographed small town drama. Sometimes it feels like Claude Chabrol in his best years. Great acting and very German. Watched it last night on German TV. Was on the verge of going to sleep and zapped for a while when I jumped into the first minutes of this film and was immediately struck by the looks. Minister and his wife play with great empathy, but overall the atmosphere in this movie is untouched. Although it will be hard to ever see this film again anywhere in the world as it is a TV movie, if you spot it have a go and be aware you're 90 minutes are over in a whiff.
