Öllers and Niederländer have everything under control. For the past six years, the two successful business consultants have been traveling through some of the seediest countries around the world in order to satisfy their clients' greed.
On the coastline of Windholm one morning 15 years ago the ocean just disappeared. Since then the emptiness has been raising questions and anxiety. The cause of the phenomenon remains unclear. With a new theory at hand the physicist Micha (28) is one of many young scientists who is trying to get his hands on to one of his university's rare scholarships to explore the phenomena. After the many years of work he has put into the project he must once again see how a bold idea ends at the doors of the antiquated establishment - he receives a rejection. At the same time Jana (31), daughter of the institute's boss and Micha's former colleague on the project, resurfaces at the university. This doesn't make the situation any easier for Micha. A year ago she left him and the project and ran off to Portugal. Jana has now returned to put a definite end to her scientific career - but there is something else: Jana has to clarify something with Micha. When Micha decides to take the trip to Windholm ...Written by
The fence on the coastline was actually built by the production design department to a length of 30 meters. Most of close ups and middle length shots were shot in front of this real fence, while in wide shots it was extended digitally. Every six hours the fence had to be dismounted because of the incoming flood. See more »
This movie is so boring I fell asleep twice while watching it. It's only a little over an hour long, but it feels like three hours. I liked some of the shots and most of the actors, but the characters they play are so bloodless I couldn't get myself to care about what happens to them. The story is a hodgepodge of mystery, conspiracy, family drama, and random romance. I recommend this movie if you have trouble sleeping, high blood pressure, or a short temper. It will calm you down no end. Put it on mute to spare yourself the ludicrous dialogue. Sample line: Some people are afraid of the void.
