An emergency services worker's diffi­culties in forming relationships finally ends when he meets a woman he has dreamt about – the pregnant ex of a junkie who overdosed and died. Against the backdrop of work in the sadder aspects of German life, their relationship is something of a miracle really and ends on a note of affirmation. I really liked this film.


In his vistuoso feature-fil debut, Hendrik Holzemann probes into the soul of a troubled young man who rescues others but is desperately in need of being rescued himself.

"Crash" isn't his name; but it's what they call him. Orphaned at the age of seven after a car accident killed both of his parents, Crash grew up with a scar on his face and a scar in his soul. A fear of intimacy has turned him into a melancholy loser; a longing to help others has led him to become a medic on a rescue team. When he's not out on the streets saving lives, he dreams of escaping, of finding the young woman who appears just before he wakes.
