Storyline

Maria is a student at the university of Essen, Germany, living and working in a gray, unpleasant, and anonymous environment. While she has little problem finding someone for a one night stand, she rebuffs her lovers in such a rude way that they actually don't know what's going on. But what seems to be a negative attitude at first glance is in fact much worse: Maria is suffering from borderline syndrome, a serious psychotic disease that makes her fail to develop a continuous, reliable personality, from her own perspective as well as from the perspective of those she meets. Then one day, she bumps into Jan, a student who falls in love with her without delay. He's awaiting a hard time when he has to learn how hard it is to stay loyal and faithful to a person who, in her own words, "has a different world inside of her head" and who feels that "there is something inside of me that eats me up." Written by Claus Horn

Even cuties get the blues
15 August 2007 | by richard_sleboeSee all my reviews

Would I have enjoyed the movie if not for the lovely Lavinia Wilson? Would I even have gone out to see it in the first place? It's a good acid test of any movie's inherent qualities, especially of the script. Don't get me wrong. I don't mean to say that a pretty lead isn't a good reason to see a movie. It's as good a reason as any. People do it all the time, and girls too. Entire careers were built on this. Think Rudolph Valentino, Omar Sharif, Richard Gere. Would any couple sit through, say, "The English Patient", if not for Ralph Fiennes (for her) and Juliette Binoche (for him)? Would anybody but the most serious gaming geeks watch "Tomb Raider" minus Angelina Jolie or "Resident Evil" without Milla Jovovich? Hardly. So would I? Probably not. I mean, it's not a bad story. Maria (Lavinia Wilson) is a very troubled girl. She keeps driving the nice guys away and ends up with the one guy who's bad for her. Wolfgang (Richy Müller) takes advantage of her vulnerability, buying her drinks and clothes in return. It's a rotten deal. You walk away from "Allein" without a doubt that life's a bitch.
