The film, based on an original script by Jos Stelling and Bert Rijkelijkhuizen, tells the story of the Russian physician Nicolai who returns to an old hotel, the place where he first met his great love half a century ago, and relives his romantic tragedy. A large part of the film is set in the late nineteenth century and is situated in a abandoned hotel/sanatorium in Tannenfeld, Thuringia (formerly East Germany), where most of the recordings also took place. The hotel still has traces of an impressive past. Eventually it becomes clear why he really has returned.Written by

One of the saddest movies I've ever watched.. but beautiful!! Love story a bit like Anna Karenina! Obsession, drama and impossible love!! Cried a lot with this movie!! I didn't know the actors but I was actually impressed with both "Elisa" and "Nicolai", all characters with a powerful way of expressing themselves even without words! Strong movie even though by the title and even the beginning of the movie already tells you the end of it. I always enjoyed this kind of movies, tragic and obsessed love and if you also are a fan of this kind of films you should definitely watch this one, just prepare some tissues ;))
