This move is not a love story. It is a story about the German soul and its straitjackets at the start of the millennium. It is about Wiesbaden, Frankfurt, and Vienna, and what unites them and separates them. It is not a movie that travels well--it requires an understanding of German character.and offers no handy explanations. I'm sure there is a subtitled version available but it almost makes no sense to have such a thing. If you don't know the language, you probably don't know enough about the various personality types to appreciate what the film has to offer. I think this explains the wide range of ratings. Those expecting the movie to be about the characters and their relationships are disappointed. Those who see it as a piece about a particular place and time in Europe are rewarded.
