Storyline

A minute's silence is being observed in the grammar school of Hirtshafen, a small fishing town on the Baltic shore - in memory of Stella Petersen, the school's young English teacher. For one of her students, however, Stella was more than a teacher: She was his first love. From 18-year-old Christian's point of view, we relive a magical summer affair between two young people that ends abruptly and tragically, but is transformed, through death, to immortality.

Slow. Careful. Beautiful.
25 July 2017 | by ioandiankovSee all my reviews

Julia Koschitz is a emotionally wounded woman coming back from London to her hometown, where she is hired to be an English teacher. A student of hers played by Jonas Nay falls in love with her and tries to make her love him back.

A classic story, well made and beautifully directed. I absolutely loved it! I haven't watched a movie this touching with so little in it. It's short, goes on point. Pretty much no stupidity or at least not as noticeable as in most movies.

The transition between the future and the past are so well done. The actors play is absolutely on point.

The protagonists never made me feel like they are not real people. The actors did amazing job at portraying a forbidden relationship in a conservative town.
