Valeska Grisebach
DEU 2006
88 min

Martin and Ella live in a village not far from Berlin. The couple have loved each other since they were children. They seem inseparable. One day, Martin goes on a business trip to a large town with the fire brigade. After a night of heavy drinking and carousing he wakes up in another woman's apartment. His efforts to find out what did occur lead to a passionate affair. This liaison does not change his love for his wife - even for a moment. But, try as he might, he cannot seem to find his way back to his old life. Told in a realistic style that sometimes has the feel of a documentary, Valeska Grisebach's debut feature is an unusual love story with echoes of the melodramatic and the fairy-tale. Before making this film, Valeska Grisebach conducted extensive video research into the private lives and loves of thirtysomethings living in Berlin-Brandenburg.
