so cool
23 July 2004 | by heavenly_surrenderSee all my reviews

It's been years since i saw this film, but it left a lasting impression on me. It is so funny and cool. I really hope they release it on DVD with English subtitles because i don't understand German sadly.... I am (almost) willing to learn German just so that i can enjoy this film on DVD. It's that good :) The film is about this girl who is afraid to die, so she's taking a course preparing her for her death, and some strange vodoo man moves into her building. And if i remember correctly she's having an affair with her boss, or at least with someone who works with her, and it's a disaster... Her desperation and loneliness is easy to identify with, as well as her struggle for love and direction in her life.
