Storyline

Armin Steeb is adrift: just finished with school, living with his middle-class parents, clueless about finding work. He tries connecting with a girl, he engages in risky sex with strangers in public toilets, he goes to job interviews. He also sends an anonymous letter to a local Munich newspaper, claiming responsibility for a fatal road accident. He fitfully pursues notoriety as he goes through life nearly without affect. What will it take to get Armin to smile? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Definitely not as good as "Muxmäuschenstill..."
4 April 2006 | by avanineglectSee all my reviews

I saw this movie at the Philadelphia Independent Film Festival. I did end up being somewhat disappointed because this movie sounded somewhat like last year's "Quiet as a Mouse" (which has yet to be released in the US, or anywhere with subtitles!) but it turned out to be a lot more confusing. It seemed to be very drifting and vague, with no central plot, and the 'startling ending' wasn't so startling at all. As the final scene ended and the credits came up, the audience cried out collectively. No one had expected it to end with such a little whimper, no bang at all.

However, the fantasy sequences were entertaining and the acting was great, so I would still give this movie a 6 out of 10, and see it again in hopes to understand it better...
