I found this movie by accident on cable tonight. It was in German with subs, but still very entertaining. No fancy cinematography, no digital imaging, not really much of a soundtrack. Still a very powerful story. Looking at the IMDB, most of the actors in the movie are German and have yet to be in any American movies. Nice to see that there are still simple movies that can rely on the story to be entertaining. I'm sure the budget was next to nothing. Most of the actors appear to be local or theater/stage actors. It's not like I fell in love with this movie, but it was a nice change from the eye-candy-filled hollow movies that are being mass produced as we speak.
