Chris and Gitti are a mismatched young German couple involved in a tense, dynamic relationship. He's a tall, pasty, good-looking, charming but distant guy with a weak chin and a worried expression; she's small and robust, a blunt, childlike, free-spirited, boisterous bundle of nervous energy. They are a couple struggling for definition against bourgeois norms, and the film examines their relationship in the petri dish of a vacation at his parents' haute-bourgeois, kitsch-stuffed Sardinian villa. Alternately loving and bickering with each other--and apparently thinking this makes them unique--their relationship is cemented with invented private riffs on a shared sense of humor. An encounter with a former schoolmate of Chris's and his wife prompts changes that may be good, or may spell out the warning in the writing on the wall.

This German film presents a realistic view of relationships and how there are both ups and downs in any romantic relationship. It also emphasizes how difficult it can be to not compare one's relationship to other relationships. This movie is not too exciting, but it is intriguing.

If you're looking for a nice romantic comedy, look elsewhere. This movie takes on a relationship turning sour head on. Anyone who has been romantically involved where it's clear it will not work out, will relate. Expertly crafted to capture the subtle misgivings between to two people, this movie will make you cringe or tear up in a wonderfully cathartic sort of way.

I liked this German film. It told the story of a couple vacationing in Sardinia whilst their relationship starts to show its strain. I agree with poolman's comment that the couple wasn't interesting at all (I found Gitti to be shallow and quite annoying as a character to watch throughout the movie), and hard to believe they were still a couple after a few incidents in the movie, but the film was very well made and i would recommend it.

A different style of movie making to be sure but not one I find attractive. This relationship film is neither the schmaltzy Hollywood type nor the 'dirty little secrets' British type but one where the couple are seemingly devoid of emotion most of the time. Especially contrasted with the 2 other 'normal' couples we meet, it's amazing that Chris and Gitti ever got together yet alone stayed as bf and gf in such a barren love affair.
