Winner of the "Silver Bear" at the 2009 Berlinale.
A young couple’s relationship is pushed to the brink while vacationing in the Mediterranean in this smart, sexy drama from acclaimed new filmmaker Maren Ade. On the surface, Chris and Gitti appear blissfully in love while enjoying the sun and sand of Sardinia. But the more time they spend together, the more their silly games and playful teasing begin to unmask hidden fears and desires. When they accidentally run into another, seemingly happier and more successful couple, the tensions between them erupt.

Boring and trite, yes, life-like, but that doesn't make it a good movie. We don't really give a damn about this couple, or wether they stay together or not
I thought the movie was very cerebral and I liked it very much. It ran the gamut of emotion for most every relationship on both the female and male point of view. Very interesting.
This movie was such a great movie...I was so anxious throughout the entire film. The struggle this young couple had speaks so much for so many people. I really enjoyed it to the fullest.
I don't get this movie... I had to read the short summary/description of the film to figure out what it's about. The movie didn't seem to describe any perspective of couple's life or love and the plot didn't flow well either. I'm not sure why this movie got good rating/review... nothing leaves me ..

made no sense to me
The characters were believable and you felt the connection and the loss between the couple. Could of had a better dramatic ending.
haw to play the movie???? what to do
Very delightful,thought provoking. Felt sorry for the woman. I think she will eventually leave him.
It is very interesting how this film through a talented acting shows the idiosyncracies of a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship.
I found it very easy to believe the characters, the emotion was real - esp. the awkard moments. Very well done and an interesting look at male/female relationships.
chillingly realistic and touching
Some complex human interactions between the two. Well, done.
Very German. Very good.
