A German movie with interesting characters (no joke...)
17 January 2003 | by comeauSee all my reviews

This is a small, uneven movie, but the characters are well drawn, something so rare in German movies. Ramona, Andrzej and Lucy were all fascinating in very different ways. Susanne Lothar was truly excellent, and played Ramona with truth and sensitivity when few other actresses could have resisted the temptation to froth at the mouth and make a big show of gnawing the wallpaper. I'd seen her the day before in "Funny Games" and that finely drawn performance made this one even more special. The direction here is full of heart, with a real understanding of loneliness throughout. Occasionally it drifts into the realm of the "deliberately lyrical" to the detriment of its essential story, but one comes away remembering the things I sense the director would have wanted the audience to take away from it.
