Lola controls her personal life with the same ruthless efficiency she uses to optimize profits in her job as a business consultant. But when a tragic event forces the past back into her life, Lola's grip on reality seems to slips away.
In a small and isolated town, Simon Dubé dies in a car accident. The stunned townspeople are reluctant to discuss the circumstances of the tragedy. From that point on time seems to lose all meaning, and the days stretch on without end.
Of course this is not the movie you invite your gilrfriend too. 1970s Hamburg Reeperbahn was an ugly place with a lot of broken people... and this is what Fatih Akin reproduced... broken people on every level... the murder scenes are very hard and even if the movie has some kind of tragic comedy moments your laugher will stay in the throat ... Definately not for the faint of heart ... it is not a funny Akin Movie ... maybe it is also not a horror movie but what he can reproduce is the uglyness and helpless life these people have... Highly recommended if you have the stomach ...
