A smug luxury-car salesman finds his personal life thrown into turmoil after he seriously injures a young boy in a hit-and-run accident. Guilt stricken, he decides to confess to the boy's mother at the hospital but then poses as a comforting bystander; soon they're having an intense affair even as the mother searches methodically for the person who struck her son. This 2003 German feature offers exceptionally good performances by Benno Fürmann and Nina Hoss in the lead roles. Writer-director Christian Petzold (The State I Am In) has created a quietly suspenseful tale, though it's hampered by some contrived coincidences and a fatalism that's much too calculated. In German with subtitles. 90 min.
