In this edgy comedy drama from director Maren Ade, Chris (Lars Eidinger) and Gitti (Birgit Minichmayr) are a couple whose relationship has more than its share of ups and downs; she works as a publicist for a rock group whose career is going nowhere in particular, while he's an architect who hasn't been able to persuade anyone to build one of his designs just yet. While Gitti's career isn't much, it's enough to give her head-of-the-household status, to Chris' chagrin. Chris and Gitti are spending some time at his well-to-do family's summer home in Sardinia, and they seem to be getting along relatively well until they meet another couple vacationing nearby, Hans (Hans-Jochen Wagner) and Sana (Nicole Marischka). Hans is an architect like Chris, but unlike Chris his career is in high gear, while Sana is a well-respected artist. Hans isn't afraid to display his alpha-male status in their relationship, and Chris' attempts to emulate him add to the tension between him and Gitti, while she isn't sure what to make of a couple who seem so outwardly happy.

"Like Cassavetes' A Woman Under the Influence, Ade's film is as unpredictable and ambiguous as it is raw." -MINNEAPOLIS STAR TRIBUNE

“Brilliant dissection of a relationship and, more subtly, of class relations in contemporary Germany.” - The Hollywood Reporter

“Ms. Minichmayr and Mr. Eidinger are beautifully matched and so believable as a couple that you never doubt their intimacy or the emotions of their characters. They fit together as easily as they slip apart, with a naturalness that is rare on the screen… the film’s uninflected realism and unforced beauty alone make it worthy of exploring and revisiting.” - New York Times
