Storyline

A swingers tale: A relaxing weekend in the country doesn't go quite as planned for two German couples. Anna, around 40, and her much younger boy toy, Stefan, have come to the former's quaint childhood home, tucked away in a lush, green forest in former East Germany. An old friend of Anna's, Bernd, is already at the cottage with his boyfriend of many years, Marc. The two couples are all set to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and each other's company over a long summer weekend. But like the open-pit mine activities that are happening nearby and sending unexpected small quakes throughout the region, there are things in Anna's and Bernd's past that start to influence the present, beginning with the revelation that Anna and Bernd used to be not only classmates but also lovers.

puzzle
6 September 2019 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

I saw it as a puzzle. The first part propose the original sketch. The second is dominated by improvisation. Two couples, memories and sex, conversation and secrets, a cottage and childhood traces.The good points - photography and the performance of Gudrun Ritter. The only sin, maybe, the desire to contain more than a simple theme . But , far to be a great movie, it is an interesting one.
