Hoelzemann might have a great future as a German film maker. The plot is subtle, the dialogs witty and understated, the acting, in particular by Schweighoefer and Kremp, great. Schweighoefer is a charismatic actor on who this film is built my wife commented that his presence reminded her of James Dean. To me the psychology of the human relations was more important than the actions the opposite of how Hollywood movies usually proceed. The scene with the suicidal girl on the roof the Cologne cathedral in the background is a game of life and death that keeps you breathless. Were it not for some sentimental, heavy scenes (in particular between November and Crash), I would rate it 10.
