Product Description:

From German director Tom Tykwer, whose energetic RUN LOLA RUN wowed audiences in 1998, comes this ethereal modern-day fairy tale. Hypnotizing German actress Franka Potente (RUN LOLA RUN, BLOW) stars opposite deft, volatile newcomer Benno Furmann. Using beautiful visuals involving ice cubes, underwater bubbles, rain, and the well-worn buildings of Wuppertal, Tykwer implements his signature filming style--a roving, curious, rapid camera that examines its subjects in extreme close up, follows letters into mailboxes, and soars over the nighttime city like a bird. The musical score and the impeccable use of sound complete the film's sensory excellence.

Bodo (Furmann) and Sissi (Potente) come together under strange circumstances: at the scene of an accident where Bodo saves Sissi's life after she is run over by a truck. Then he disappears. Sissi returns to her little room in the nursing ward of a psychiatric hospital where she works with mentally ill patients, one of whom is her own father. However, she cannot forget the man that saved her and has a powerful feeling that her life is inherently connected with his. Unable to pick up her life where she left it before the accident, she seeks out Bodo, who lives in a dilapidated house with his brother, and quickly establishes a steadfast bond with him.
