A French woman s search for her kidnapped child intersects, almost randomly, with the lives of two teenage girls, drifters, on the run from the authorities. Could one of them be the missing child? Set in the lazy heat of Berlin in midsummer, and starring Julia Hummer (THE STATE I AM IN), it s a work of extraordinary precision and - as ever with Christian Petzold - an uncanny, almost mystical force, gently intimating not only the mysteries of human behaviour, but the inexorable pull of destiny. Carefully understated, technically flawless, it confirms its maker as the most talented and consistently fascinating German filmmaker of his generation.
