Low budget german gem
22 May 2019 | by jackfuchsSee all my reviews

I am quite picky when it comes to movie quality. The storytelling here is really nice. I could relate to some of the key moments. So to be honest and I guess because everything was so near to reality, I got wet eyes in several scenes.

Maybe it teaches a lot of us this little special something. I would recommend watching it.
