Tourists are nothing but ghosts who are endlessly clicking boring photos.
11 August 2008 | by FilmCriticLalitRaoSee all my reviews

In "Nichts Als Gespenster",we have been shown that most of the relationships fail as people have a lot of ego.As young people do not wish to remain true to themselves,it is quite possible for their relationships to fall apart.Martin Gypkens films five unsteady German couples who do not have any basis of stability in their relationships. His film has nice scenes of Grand Canyon,Venice and Iceland.This film is based on two books, Nothing But Ghosts and The Summer House written by acclaimed German writer Judith Hermann.This is one of the few German films where German attitudes,continual craze,growing fascination and everlasting desire of German people for tourism have been questioned.At times,it appears as if the entire tourism business has been ridiculed. After talking to an American man,a German couple realizes that they have made a mistake by not having children.This couple learns that tourism is nothing but a passing fad.It is by watching this film that we learn that real sorrows just do not disappear from the minds of people as they invariably travel in order to escape realities around them.
