Storyline

Lena, who has long been married to Tore, suddenly experiences a retrograde amnesia, as doctors describe her condition. The cause is an undiagnosed encephalitis. As a result,she lost her entire memory overnight. She can still speak, but all memories of her previous life are extinguished. Her friends and parents are suddenly strangers to her. Even her husband does not recognize her again. Her old life becomes for her a story that others have to describe. First, she tries to fulfill her "old" role in this story, in order to meet the expectations of her social environment. But she develops her own individual personality, which refuses to do what her environment expects of her and what she is urged to do - namely, to become herself. From time to time, she realizes that her "new" self has completely different desires and needs. Written by lament

One of the best movies of 2014
9 November 2015 | by SvetoslavGrigorovSee all my reviews

I accidentally came upon this little German movie. It started with a blurry camera and a woman having a shocking moment of losing her identity. The story is not predictable but slowly unfolds in front of you while you question yourself fundamentals such as how society force our lives to be a web of lies. How innocence can be killed if does not play the game of survival. It's a brave movie with few explicit erotic scenes which only the European cinema can produce. There is no censorship in it, so be prepared. Needless to say it is a big psychological roundabout behind the unalloyed script and it's one of those movies like Polanski's Bitter Moon where you can always go back and find a hidden layer. A must see!
