Storyline

Florian Hoffmeister's feature film debut focuses on a woman, whose world is turned upside down when her lost vanished boyfriend returns after five years. When Jan and Marie traveled to Spain with some friends, Jan disappeared without a trace. Five years later, Marie, now married to Frank, incidentally discovers Jan's Spanish address and writes him a farewell letter, which she throws into the wastebasket. However, Frank finds the crumbled paper and sends it off. After a short while, Jan returns to his hometown, making Marie uncertain of her feelings... Written by fippi2000

Human relationship under the microscope
12 April 2006 | by exitwound-2See all my reviews

Unlike most recent movies, "3° kälter" prioritizes internal to external development which makes it a slow moving but intense treat. If you go and see it, you should be prepared for an almost fatalist close-up study on love, loneliness and despair. With few exceptions, the film paints a rather grim picture of human nature and relationship. Maybe Hoffmeister is no second Ingmar Bergmann (or isn't yet, if Bergmann is ever to be matched…), but his film remains very well-elaborate and poignant. Probably too heavy to be a commercial success, this movie will leave a deep impression among those who are willing to engage with it.
