Production Report featured in
German Films Quarterly 01/2017

Hans and girlfriend, nicknamed Heinz, are a couple. Lacking all drama, romance and lust, as pragmatists they decide to try again and live the big screen romance. But constant change and new obstacles put their love to the real test. A romantic trip with their friends into the past, to the day they met, turns into a total flop because their individual memories of the event are very different. Their relationship becomes increasingly shaky, they grow more and more estranged. But when Hans' father dies the experiment is put on ice. Life and death are a serious business and they realize there is more to life than living as in a film. Finally, they find in their love in what for us, as viewers, was film-worthy from the outset: the beauty of the everyday.
