Plot & Details

German filmmaker Michael Gutmann directs the romantic drama Herz über Kopf (Heart Over Head), his second teen movie collaboration with writer/director Hans-Christian Schmid. After his mother's death, 18-year-old Jakob (Tom Schilling) quit school and went to Berlin to live with his father. The next year, he travels to Frankfurt to stay with his older sister, Petra (Anna von Berg), with the intention of looking for a job. He ends up helping Petra out, since she's pregnant and her boyfriend has left her and her school-age son alone with little money. Jakob meets Wanda (Alicja Bachleda-Curus), an au pair from Poland, and they fall in love. He wants to stay in Frankfurt and be with her, but her friends and host family don't like him.
