"Boundaries are crossed, narratively, aesthetically, acting-wise - Anke Retzlaff as Leni is worth every penny of fees. At the end you sit there stunned. And you need something stronger  than mulled wine."


"Breathtakingly believable: [...] So touchingly naïve, so wild, so swept away! Great cinema."
