“Critic’s Pick! Köhler’s first film is a secretive and beautifully observant study of teenage disaffection.”
—The New York Times
“Resembles ’70s pics like FIVE EASY PIECES. Perfs are excellent all around, with Dogma-like naturalism never pushed to any showy effect.”
“Considerably more complicated than the love triangle it might seem on its surface. Concludes ambivalently and ingeniously.”
—Sight & Sound
Quintessential in any look at the Berlin School, the debut of Ulrich Köhler (IN MY ROOM) is a wry portrait of a German soldier (Lennie Burmeister) who goes AWOL only to return to his childhood home where his older brother (Devid Striesow) is vacationing along with his Danish girlfriend (Trine Dyrholm). A beguiling look at German youths adrift.
