I have seen "Nachtgestalten" last week in a sneak preview and I was bored, to say the least. The idea of a movie split into episodes isn't that bad, but jumping from one set of characters to the other without any substance in between leaves behind a very shallow feeling. Three couples, three stories which have been already told a thousand times. The farmer from out of town looking for some sex and trying to help the prostitute from out of her problems. The homeless couple having the opportunity to spend some money in town. The businessman, picking up an forgotten boy at the airport an trying to get him to his friend in the city. Yeah. That's it.
I was not interested at all, how a particular thread in this "story" ended. It was all too obvious.
