Actors: Franka Potente, Benno Furmann, Joachim Krol

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Princess and the Warrior

Tom Tykwer and girlfriend Franka Potente, the writer/director and star of "Run Lola Run," collaborate on another story of chance and human will at a very different pace. Sissi is the young, somewhat simple nurse who lives a secluded life in the Birkenhoff asylum, where all the staff and inmates love her but life is repetitive and lonesome. Bodo is an army vet obsessed with his wife's death in a gas station accident. The lives of these two people "stuck in time" collide when Bobo inadvertantly distracts a truck that hits Sissi and leaves her flat on the ground and unable to breathe. Bobo saves her life, performing a rather graphic tracheotomy with a pocket knife and soda straw, and while she is paralyzed and looks into his feverish eyes, Sissi develops the notion that they are meant for each other. She searches for him after her release from the hospital but Bobo pushes her away, partly because he and his brother are planning to rob a bank -- where the couple's trails cross again. Unlike "Lola," "The Princess and the Warrior" is slow and stately, yet the tension is palpable and nearly constant. As the title suggests, there's something fairy-tale-ish about the story, yet it never oversteps the bounds of realism.
