Unusual love story
5 June 2007 | by FilmHouseGermanySee all my reviews

The story of Laurens M. Wagner, a shy workaholic bureaucrat and his life-changing relationship with the unconventional girl, Gina Kohlmeier, he meets in a café. "Frühstück mit einer Unbekannten" (Suddenly Gina) is a remake of the hugely successful BBC movie "The Girl In The Café". The adaption adheres on the whole to the original, allows themselves in addition, a few references to the German politics, policy and the specific fuss about Heiligendamm. The much discussed safety fence is here for example a large topic and the film captivates by the fact that it allows us to see behind the curtain of the business and affairs in global politics.

"Frühstück mit einer Unbekannten" is an unusual love story and the cast is excellent. It is younger, sweeter and lighter but the political side is just as pronounced as in the original "The Girl In the Café". It is more of a classical romantic comedy with a political twist. The role of Gina Kohlmeier is played by Julia Jentsch, renowned for her award-winning portrayal of the heroine in "Sophie Scholl". Further are to be seen: Stefan Kurt, Andrea Sawatzki, Jördis Triebel and Catherine Deneuve. While Julia Jentsch carries her role marvelously and ensures outstanding soft moments, Jan Josef Liefers convinces by his reserved, naive kind.
