rated for 0 + years
Marlene leaves Leonhard for his best friend Jan. Leonhard falls in love with Anja who also falls in love with Jan. Everybody could be so happy but is not in this touching melodrama about passion and loss which gets under the audience's skin. Excellent actors (Barbara Auer, Tobias Moretti, Ulrich Thomsen, Jessica Schwarz) understand that fear always plays a part when we are longing for love.
