      “The Princess and the Warrior” is truly a film that you will not mind reading the subtitles on. As a matter of fact, you may find that you’ve forgotten that this film is in German. Franka Potente stars in this film as a psychiatric nurse who becomes embroiled in the shenanigans of a former military man and his brother.


      (Franka Potente) is saved by the veteran after a nasty accident. Afterwards, she is bound and determined to discover the meaning behind this chance encounter.

      This may sound like Amelie a little. But the events taking place are far darker and more serious than those in that French film.

      In any event, Sissi goes to great lengths to find this stranger. She feels that they are in some way connected by fate, and is determined to find out why the chance encounter happened.

      I will admit that the movie takes a few turns that I wasn’t expecting. It’s beautifully filmed and engrossing.

      But I can’t help but get the feeling that something else was missing. I love Franka Potente.


      • The Princess & The Warrior (R, 2000) movie
      She has a really honest face, and good acting skills. The young man portraying her love interest was both earnest and sexy in his role.

      But I would not call his performance in this movie riveting. Look for lot of coincedences, and some mild action.

      I say mild because even though this film is heavy on movement, the

      overall pacing seems slower than imagined it would be. Perhaps seeing Run Lola Run (same star, same director) before this movie has spoiled me into thinking that this one would be more fast-paced.

      Still, this is a wonderful movie for those who enjoy foreign cinema. The director does a fabulous job of making sure that the movie contains a dark, yet dreamy quality.
