Theo, a hip young, Berlin call boy lives his life alone. In the hotel room he takes his shower and his money. Business is good, so good he can pick and choose his clients. Marie lives next door with her boyfriend, the writer Paul. She works at a record store to support them both, but it is not enough. Frustrated, one day Paul decides to leave. Marie is shattered, retreating behind her closed door, into the darkness of her apartment. Soon, Theo knocks on the door and light slowly seeps back into Marie's life. Slowly both find that love is possible in the most improbable of places. But just when it seems that all the barriers have come down, Paul comes back, and the door that had opened just a crack closes again.

A master study of character... extremely well structured and acted... the film satisfies on a broad level. --Rebecca Lieb- Variety
