Storyline

Lotte is impulsive, rough around the edges and leads a colourful life on the streets of Berlin, stumbling from man to man and flat to flat. One night in her local bar she bumps into Marcel, an almost forgotten acquaintance. Just after he recognises her Lotte takes flight, finding refuge in the flat of her friend Sabine. The following day, the events of the previous evening still grate on Lotte and she cannot seem to shake them off, even during her work at the hospital. A young girl, Greta, is brought in, Lotte takes care of her and a gentle affection develops between them. But this happiness is short-lived because, a little later, Lotte witnesses an encounter between Greta and Marcel. The three catch sight of each other and Lotte realises she will not be able to run away this time.

Cold, Disturbing and Just Plain Boring
19 March 2018 | by Michael DanielsSee all my reviews

The first thing you notice about this movie is the coldness of the characters. They lack any kind of emotional response at all. It seems something endemic in German films. Within this background we then see an estranged mother initiate her newly found teenage daughter into the world of cigarettes, alcohol, drugs and sex. Furthermore, this so called, "mother" works during the day as a nurse and a binge drinking drop out by night. It's as if all the characters in this movie are bound up in some awful past trauma. Are the makers of the film trying to say, "We are Germans and this is what we are" ? This process continues and without any kind of resolution. There is nothing that brings this dire farce to any kind of conclusion. The coldness and lack of warmth in this film makes one want to scream! Ultimately it leads to a flat, boring, robotic film. A very poor example of a functional exercise in low budget film making and nothing else.
