Official Selection, 2006 Cannes and Toronto Film Festivals
Martina Gedeck (THE LIVES OF OTHERS; MOSTLY MARTHA) gives an outstanding performance in this slyly crafted deception: a bourgeois drama that plays like a thriller—or is it vice versa?—equal parts Rohmer and Chabrol in its directorial influences. On summer vacation, Gedeck becomes concerned when her teenage son's visiting girlfriend starts spending time alone with an older man. At first playing the responsible adult, keeping tabs on the wandering minor, Gedeck eventually becomes embroiled in an unusual love triangle, one with surprising consequences.
