For Fynn, there is a clear order to life. He does maintenance on bottle sorting machines and is always on the road. No fixed abode, no commitments, no ballast. Marlen is completely different. Her apartment is her castle and nobody besides her has been in it in years. Things collect here – they hang on the walls, pile up in the hall, and block any pathway. Although she exudes self-confidence in her everyday life, Marlen’s life actually seems to be stuck in a vacuum between all the clutter. She no longer allows anyone close. Until water damage means that Fynn is suddenly standing in her apartment. Despite being polar opposites, the two unexpectedly begin to feel a mutual sympathy. “Order is half the battle”, he says. “Welcome to the other half”, she answers. With a lot of humour and a touch of militancy, the two talk about how much you really need in life. In Natja Brunckhorst’s directorial debut, Corinna Harfouch and Daniel Strässer play a disparate pair who end up growing on, and with, each other.
