| Mayday, mayday, the plot got tangled up!
The director clearly couldn't make up his mind whether to please his co-producers and churn out a conventional made-for-TV movie, or whether to impress his film school buddies with a postmodern patchwork of plot lines and perspectives. To make things worse, the script is based on a true story, but it doesn't *tell* that story, and even if you are a close follower of the air traffic control scene, chances are you won't know what's going on. I'll give it 5 of 10 anyway, on the grounds of a single memorable scene: Marie Bäumer's character Franziska has just lost her husband. She's on the phone with her secret long-time lover to arrange a consolatory rendezvous as her mother-in-law walks in. Time itself seems suspended for a split second. She could simply hang up and play the grieving widow. Or maybe not. Suffice it to say Franziska takes a dramatic decision that will define who she is once and for all. Judge for yourself, but that scene made my day.
