edgy drama
25 February 2002 | by Anne-girlSee all my reviews

I loved this film, even though the setting and characters were completely foreign to me (see location for explanation). I appreciated that it was not melodramatic, like so many Hollywood flicks, and that, even though it is a tragic tale, it is not depressing. There is an overarching mood of hopefulness, rather than the hopelessness you'd expect from a movie with a storyline like Alaska.de's. I recommend the movie for non-Germans, too. If you can handle subtitles, it's a real cultural experience. No one quite makes edgy movies like the Germans do.
