  Mary is an extraordinary woman. With their surprisingly direct way it drives the men on the defensive and lures at the same time from the reserve. This leads to an equally funny as cryptic triangle. Hannah filmed with a light hand in her feature film debut Schweier the Roman Cindy loves me not by Jochen-Martin Gutsch and Juan Moreno. To make the mood of a seductive summer, the novel and film is to give something shimmering. Out of nowhere appears Maria (Anne Schäfer) until David (Peter Weiss), and then on to Franz (Clemens Schick). In both men, this new love a chord, which they have been hardly felt in himself. Maria knows how to adapt and so empathize with the fears and desires of their partners that their own person is also almost invisible. In fact, the young woman disappears one day, really. In the search for her meet David and Francis. Both just learned that Mary shared the bed with each other. And although the men could not be more different. Law clerk of a stuffy, casual-cool barman the other. Both neglect their jobs in the prosecution and the bar with the curious name of “Cindy loves me not.” Instead, they swing into Franz’s rickety Opel, at right angles to ask through Germany and Denmark to Mary. At first glance, this is a gay relationship history, which soon developed into a road movie – with an equally loving how distanced and ironic look at the figures. At second glance, the deficits become more the focus of attention, especially those of the two men. As amazing as it sounds: both know of the woman she viewed as her friend for months, almost nothing. Where do their parents, who are their colleagues what she has done before – all this apparently neither Francis nor David was interested. It is less the person they loved, rather than the image that they made from it, the projection of a double-Maria, on which transfers all his wishes from the ideal woman. By allowing real close to these lone wolves, however, have so your difficulties. To the best moments of Cindy loves me not count the moments in which are the two disparate men aware of their weaknesses and relationship deficits. There is a quiet, below the competitive level, delicately unfolding friendship between the two, which is becoming more important than the triple braid. Especially as the search brings to light details, which suggest that Mary and the love so has its difficulties. And could not possibly be happy with even with David Francis. It may be the novel and the film also read as a portrait of a generation, as did director Hannah Schweier in a comment to the press release. A generation that created the Internet lifestyles and identities that do not correspond to reality. But where people flatter their own personality and draw pictures of themselves that are more to their wishes. You can also read the film as a finely observed, humorous examination of relationship deficits. And as a story of personal change for the better, seem unspectacular, but credible. (Peter Gutting)
