Doris Dörrie wrote and directed this angst-ridden 1999 social comedy, an Altman-esque tapestry in which a motley assortment of Germans wreak emotional havoc as they bump into each other in Munich and Seville. Like many characters in her earlier films (Men . . . , Me and Him), they're unhappy eccentrics enthralled by the past who babble endlessly about identity and fulfillment; the men are romantic, deceitful idiots preying on vulnerable but realistic women. Some of the vignettes are biting, but the plot careens so wildly that it's hard to sort out the various dalliances and dilemmas. As usual, Dörrie relies on a fine cast—including Franka Potente (Run Lola Run) and Senta Berger—to supply the emotional depth missing from her script.
