Synopsis

The best of intentions results in an awkward love triangle in affecting, low-key drama KussKuss. At Benjamin Franklin U. Hospital in Berlin, thirtysomething assistant medico Katja (Carina Wiese) discovers illegal Algerian immigrant Saida (Saida Jawad) hiding in the cloakroom. Generously, she brings the frightened young woman to the flat she shares with fiancé and humanities writer Hendrik (Axel Schrick), who, by his own admission, spends his life “thinking all day.” Though initially hostile toward the unwanted guest, Hendrik soon falls for the seemingly compliant Saida. Working with co-scripter Katrin Milhahn, helmer Soren Senn strikes the right balance of guilelessness and manipulation.
