Vergiss Amerika Details


Three young adults living on the rural outskirts of eastern Germany try to balance love with their hopes and dreams in this feature-film debut from director Vanessa Jopp. Very much in the mold of Jules et Jim, the film's plot concerns the wedge placed between small-town pals Benno (Roman Knizka) and David (Marek Harloff) when the beguiling Anna (played by a Julie Delpy-esque Franziska Petri) moves to their sleepy burg. Being the more assertive of the two friends, Benno makes the first move on Anna, and the two begin a tempestuous relationship. As the years pass, the three friends find jobs and settle down, but David -- despite his ongoing relationship with a grocery store clerk (Ursula Doll) -- never stops carrying a torch for Anna. Forget America premiered at the 2000 Munich Film Festival; Jopp's previous short films included This Is a True Story about a Puker on the Roof. ~ Michael Hastings, Rovi
