Jule, a young woman, decides to make a trip with her old Mercedes Hymer 303 motor-home from Berlin to Portugal to tell her boyfriend in person that she's pregnant. She is accompanied by the young hitchhiker Jan, and on this leisurely trip, they have a lot of time to watch together beautiful sunsets and beaches and to talk about - among others - relationships, pheromones, capitalism and Cro-Magnons - meanwhile slowly falling for each other.

The soundtrack of this summer
10 July 2018 | by shoffmhoffmSee all my reviews

It's July. But the movie of the year is already fixed. And it has a simple name:


This film by Hans Weingartner is everything without exaggeration: It's the soundtrack of this summer and all the summers we've experienced. It is the pulse beat of (at least) two generations. It is the life-philosophical debate that shoots directly into the veins and - of course - goes to the heart.

Roadmovie - that's what people in love with categories probably call what was premiered in Leipzig today. Or love story. But just because two 24-year-olds approach each other on a journey from Berlin to Portugal via Cologne, Belgium, France in a motorhome infinitely slowly, this is only a fraction of this - respect for undistorted pathos - cinematic masterpiece.

Here two young people act so relaxed and uninhibited (excellently embodied by Mala Emde and Anton Spieker) in front of the backdrop of questions of life so familiar to us (Cooperation or competition? Mono or polygamy? outsmart drugs or the annoying inner commentator in another way? Keep hoping and fighting or resigning? Abort or be parents? Fear or love? ) that it gets warmer and warmer with every minute.

In this film one develops untruthful feelings of being at home, while one is increasingly of the opinion that Jule, the main protagonist, must be the most beautiful fragile woman in the world and that the Europe open to borders and touring is a damn fine thing (...was?)

If you stand at the end of the film in a small Portuguese village in the middle of the night on the lantern-lit lonely street and hope with young Jan for the return of the motorhome with his wife, then you are right in the middle of it and are there yourself. This southern shimmer - on a lonely market place and in the lonely chambers of the heart - you have already felt it for yourself. And not only that. Everything else, too. It is a great cinematic comfort that there are people who perceive the world, which has not become as terribly simple as you do, with a similar view. But it's not all comfort. It is certainty that confidence makes sense.


For fathers over 50 with their high school graduate daughters. For motorhomes. For sea enthusiasts. For students. For Mommy and Daddy.

Oh, nonsense: For everyone. Really for everyone.
