For Nora and Aron, it’s love at first sight when they encounter one another in the subway one rainy day. Their meeting was pure chance, says Nora. Everything is pre-determined, says Aron. Then suddenly Aron is torn from this world. Time stands still for Nora. She numbs her pain, soon thereafter spending the night with Natan, who keeps popping up in her life as if by coincidence. He gives Nora something to hold onto. She has the strange feeling that she already knows him, though she doesn’t suspect what really connects them. A brilliant directorial debut from Mariko Minoguchi and a film that you definitely won’t want to miss.

“A film with great depth, not only for rainy days” (
“A triumphant fiction feature debut, a cinema experience of rare intensity” (
“One of the best films of 2019 hails from Germany!” (
