German cinema at it's best
27 September 2015 | by minerva-88-89480See all my reviews

Seriously? Beckmann? Why him?

I actually liked this movie very much. It's far better than Honig im Kopf - but this Beckmann scene was terrible. Unbearable! Minus one star because of Beckmann. Otherwise I had given it 10/10.

Nevertheless, this movie is worth watching. It's about growing old, about generation gap, how to relate to other people in modern times, German medical care system for the elderly people…., it's about overextension and about past lifes of each individual... But I guess the main theme is "don't give up, keep on rolling." In this case, running.

The cast is very good, enjoyable watching. Renowned personalities of Germany's finest actors. Usually I hate Berlin, but I liked the short sequences of the city. Perfect fit. Perfect movie.
