    SUBTITLE regulars will recognize Polish actor Jakub Gierszał in a key role in this superb multi-story picture, which explores the ideas of identity and guilt (both individual and collective) and how it affects the different generations in modern Germany. All the leading characters find it difficult to be themselves and to admit who they are and what they want. And it is fascinating to see how this sophisticated screenplay links their stories together. Punctuated with plenty of comedy, it is a film delivered with real flair and intelligence from first-time fiction director Frauke Finsterwalder. Beautifully photographed too with an outstanding ensemble cast.
