This is a near perfect film
18 May 2007 | by kuhlgeistSee all my reviews

Hoelzemann might have a great future as a German film maker. The plot is subtle, the dialogs witty and understated, the acting, in particular by Schweighoefer and Kremp, great. Schweighoefer is a charismatic actor on who this film is built – my wife commented that his presence reminded her of James Dean. To me the psychology of the human relations was more important than the actions – the opposite of how Hollywood movies usually proceed. The scene with the suicidal girl on the roof – the Cologne cathedral in the background – is a game of life and death that keeps you breathless. Were it not for some sentimental, heavy scenes (in particular between November and Crash), I would rate it 10.
