“Superbly performed, emotionally graphic.” — J. Hoberman, Village Voice

“So much is right and true in this lovely, delicate work.” — Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

Envy and attraction make for an oil-and-water mix in this sun-drenched drama. A villa on Sardinia is the vacation love nest for Chris (Eidinger), a fledgling architect with a foundering career, and his spunky new girlfriend Gitti (Minichmayr), a spunky bundle of energy who does PR for a rock band. Despite frequent lovemaking and Gitti’s good-natured nurturing, Chris drowns in insecurities. A pivotal social encounter with a rival architect and his docile wife brings their relationship to a head when a terminal blowout raises the question of whether love itself is an illusion. Winner of the Silver Bear at the 2009 Berlin Film Festival. In German with English subtitles. 35mm. (BS)
