But when Sophie, a compulsive gambler with a boyfriend problem, regularly shows up late for her appointments, she rocks his world in ways he's not ready for. Written by AnonymusB

Good idea, poor movie
28 July 2019 | by thiagosblancosSee all my reviews

Let's be honest, this therapist needs helps himself, I ca't imagine how he might help any of his patients who are basically are tying to sort him out, they should charge him for the time they are there! And the whole choir movie, well... this has been done so many times, and yes, never by Germans. The result? A complet and utter waste of time, in the end, you don't get anything out of this film, and is such a pity. So many talented actors with such a poor outcome as a result, and one utterly boring at that. By the end, you are just happy this film is over.
