The suburbs of eastern Berlin provide a desolate landscape of weedy lots and anonymous apartment blocks in this 2000 film about a teenage girl who gets mixed up with a killing. Sabine, walking alone on her way to live with her father, asks an apprentice window washer for directions; they edge toward romance, but she's placed in jeopardy after she sees his older friend fleeing with a bloody knife. Director Esther Gronenborn, a veteran of music videos and documentaries, frequently drains her wide-screen images of color, creating a sometimes dreamlike shadow world for her alienated teens. 89 min.
