The marriage of Tom and Ulrike (Nicolette Krebitz), who lead a pension on the island, therefore goes through a deep crisis. Written by
The mysterious death of a husband and father leads local police to look at the clues that lead to intimate secrets revealed in a small community. There are very few leads, but the investigation continues, despite the fact that the local policewoman is a member of the small community as well.
The cinematography is well done and gives the audience a real sense of the type of person that lives there. It shows the serene but dangerous coastline and life of the people there. Simple living can become complex, people you know can become strangers, and professionalism supersedes personal bias. A slow-moving, yet poignant film.
