I saw this movie at the Toronto European Film Festival last night. It was sold out last November so I am glad I got in this time. I loved the movie, I felt it was believable from all sorts of perspectives. Most of all I liked the Dennis the Menace Munchkin like lives of the two girls Kathe and Emma. The dialogue was very subtle, you had to pay attention, sort of like the last scene when Konrad's play suddenly marvellously syncs. The kids live in a world of mystery and freedom, but the mother works in a regimented world where a single mistake means someone doesn't wake up. You can feel the tension in the hospital, the chief surgeon makes your soul freeze. In this relationship, the father supplies the soul/blueprint for living and the mother provides the physical necessities.
