In autumn, overripe things fall. And similarly, there seems to be no certainty for the relationships between the protagonists of 1 Verabredung im Herbst. Yet at the same time, Sebastian Brauneis stages the complexity of feelings and interpersonal relationships with an uncommon lightness.
Pastel-coloured cinematography and an almost naïve characterisation of the protagonists and their gestures immediately give Fische a light, sensitive, almost carefree atmosphere, as if they were in a sort of dimension suspended in time. And this is the perfect counterpoint to the first lines of dialogue between the two young protagonists. All this because of a conflict that can only be overcome when a much-needed lightness is rediscovered.
