Shot without a screenplay. Only a raw outline for each scene existed and the lead actress used it for improvisation. In some scenes non-actors appear in their real-life roles, for example the car-salesman. See more »
Didn't really like it
I saw this film at the Toronto International Film Festival. I was only in town for 2 days of films, waited in line for single tickets, and ended up seeing this one.
It is a German movie with English subtitles about a woman who returns home from an apparent suicide attempt to find her boyfriend has another girl staying there. He has parties and she doesn't really seem to exist in her own apartment, but then out of the blue they reconcile and get married. She gets a job and steals from it and eventually goes off to start a new life.
There is certain charm to her character and you definitely empathize. However, the plot kind of rambles along and isn't particularly believable.
I don't think I would recommend it.
