It was a roaring party. But now almost all the guests have left and Karsten (Sebastian Hülk) is alone with the mysterious Anna. Between the two, it starts to tingle and they kiss. But a short time later Anna is dead. It all looks like a tragic accident. But there are doubts about Karsten's story. His private environment, his girlfriend (Julia Jentsch), his buddies and his colleagues question his innocence. And suddenly his so far ordered life seems to get completely out of joint. Hypocrisy and malevolence begin to bubble behind the façade of small-town bourgeoisie - with unexpected consequences…

With her German-language debut "Suddenly", Turkish-born Asli Özge ("Men on the Bridge") has staged a psychothriller that is surprising in many respects. Not only the plot is surprising, but especially the fact that the movie works so well. That's not what it looks like at first. The staging seems to be carried too far, as if something like tension could actually arise. What's so gripping about watching the protagonist walk for minutes through empty streets, or watching silent characters? Yes, it's very bulky and a little tiring. But it soon becomes apparent that this idiosyncratic style makes sense.

This is because Özge succeeds in creating an atmosphere that is very subtle but extremely effective and difficult to escape. So you get carried away by the calm, but somehow depressing course of the story, until the director presents a real bang for the finale, which is extremely powerful in this environment. The last act of the movie is simply great and makes the sometimes a bit tedious way to get there absolutely worthwhile. This impression is intensified by the atmospheric camera work and the very good play, especially by Sebastian Hülk.

 "Suddenly" dives unexpectedly into the human abysses and surprises with a bitter look behind the hypocritical curtain of the good bourgeoisie. That's cynical, gloomy - and just good! If you appreciate thrilling German arthouse cinema and don't mind a somewhat difficult narrative tempo, you shouldn't miss this movie just because of the last ten minutes. Therefore: despite some small lengths absolutely worth seeing!
