easily one of the worst movies i ever saw
11 February 2006 | by ft-5See all my reviews

this movie tells you for the 3.000.000th time the story of a couple with problems. you may ask, oh, if the story has been used only 2.999.999 times before why not use it once more, but on the other hand why should one? but first: this is how the movie goes: couple builds house. couple has suddenly problems (yes, it goes with a supposed pregnancy, yes it goes with a guy that mirrors their own story). she takes a few days off. he finds her and follows her with their child. she avoids him. he returns and dates another woman (the girl from their daughter's kindergarten). They almost give it a second try at the funeral of a guy they knew, but only almost... You see, the story is really old. This wouldn't be the problem, if the director had at least made something unconventional with the plot. He didn't. So basically the problem is that you have seen the whole movie hundreds of times before. There is really nothing (and i know that is hard to say) interesting about this. And by now i really find it annoying that there are so many German movies that cost a heck of a lot of money and still are such a pain to watch. And this is a extreme example of this problem. The actors don't really act the just happen to appear in a movie. The camera is wanna-be inspired. And the director has no ideas whatsoever. It's not even cheesy, it's just a waste of time.
