(Germany, 2007, 100 minutes)

A quiet police officer in line for a promotion has in fact a hellish home life with his deranged, abusive wife of almost twenty years. Bleak, stifling melodrama of dysfunctional marriage that is powerfully performed and handled while eluding a comfortable ending for the viewer.
