Something to Remind Me

More than one reviewer has touted this 2001 German TV movie as ripe for a Hollywood remake, which is another way of saying that it's heavily derivative of Hollywood movies. Christian Petzold (The State I Am In) wrote and directed this story of a fetching and mysterious blond (Nina Hoss) who seduces a moody attorney (Andre Hennicke), steals his laptop computer, and disappears to another town, where she befriends a hulking, emotionally wounded factory worker (Sven Pippig in a fine performance). Some of my colleagues were impressed by the devious plot twist at the end, and while it certainly caught me by surprise, in retrospect I think it reduces an engrossing and powerfully acted character drama to the level of a Perry Mason episode. 90 min.
