  1. Best running scenes ever! I wonder how many miles Franka Potente had to run just to make this cool film!

  5. Great memories of this movie, now refreshed thanks to this post. I saw it again and enjoyed it just as much as I did years back when I first saw it

  6. A brilliant way to tell a story. I really like the soundtrack. This is a perfect example of the importance of music in films.

  7. One of my favourites films, I recomend you Volver from Pedro Almodovar, Nymphomaniac from Lars Von Trier and Fill the Void from Rama Burshtein.
