Greece, 1984. A young Englishman and a German girl sing on the street to finance their vacations. The boy returns home after learning that his mother had an accident, leaving behind his girlfriend. Thirty years later, in Berlin, a television actress abandons her husband, who moves near a railway station. In her most recent film, the director Angela Schanelec creates a semblance of romantic disenchantment through two couples marked by distance. Influenced by the work of French director Robert Bresson, the film is configured under unnoticed temporary jumps that mark the tedium of its protagonists.
