Keep the weekdays
With such a title, one would expect glasses to crash and blouses to be torn.
The best we get is an ill-timed slap. In Das Wochenende (based on a novel by Bernhard Schlink) we follow Jens, an RAF terrorist released from jail at the beginning of the film, who goes to the country to join a surprise gathering of former associates organized by his sister. Seems like a bad idea, no? Had it been a truly terrible idea, at least it would have been entertaining. Instead, the audience shares the characters most oft repeated question: Why?
Das Wochenende | Directed by Nina Grosse (Germany 2012) with Sebastian Koch, Katja Riemann. Starts April 11
