I never thought I'd see the day that I'd give five stars to a movie I hated every minute of. It was as painful to watch as a slow-motion wreck. I had one eye on the screen and one on the clock waiting minute by minute for it to end. Had itI never thought I'd see the day that I'd give five stars to a movie I hated every minute of. It was as painful to watch as a slow-motion wreck. I had one eye on the screen and one on the clock waiting minute by minute for it to end. Had it not been flawlessly cast, perfectly scripted and directed and acted, with great cinematography, I would have hit the STOP button long before it ended. It's hard enough witnessing a neurotic relationship but a neurotic relationship of galactic proportions that's terminally deteriorating at the same time? Cut me a break Maren Ade please! Had you not filmed the perfect movie you wouldn't get away with this. One of the things that made the movie so hard to watch was that there was never, not one, false move, word, gesture, action, nuance, that was not in keeping with the painful rendering and inevitable meltdown of a relationship aimed straight at an iceberg. Thank you Maren Ade for one of the most painful and revealing two hours of my life. I hate to say it, but you're a genius. Expand
