The Princess And The WarriorDirector: Tom Tykwer, Franka Potente, Benno Fürmann, Joachim Krol
Director Tom Tykwer followed up his international hit Lola Rennt (Run Lola Run) with this drama, which also examines young people living on the edges of the law. Sisi (Franka Potente) is an attractive but withdrawn woman who works in a psychiatric clinic, while Bodo (Benno Fürmann) is looking to make some quick money after his recent release from the army. Bodo robs a gas station and is fleeing on foot when he accidentally causes Sisi to be hit by a truck. Realizing she's seriously injured, Bodo comes to Sisi's rescue and performs an emergency tracheotomy on her before he escapes again. Sisi, who is often pursued by men but shies away from their advances, finds that she longs to meet the mysterious Bodo again, and eventually tracks him down to a hideout he shares with his brother, Walter (Joachim Krol). Bodo and Walter angrily send Sisi away, but she unexpectedly encounters them when they pull a robbery at a bank where she's running an errand. Bodo and Walter are caught in a shoot-out with police, and Sisi helps to spirit Bodo away to the clinic where she works, trying to spare him the grim news that Walter was killed in the melee. In addition to serving as writer and director, Tom Tykwer also composed the musical score for The Princess and the Warrior in collaboration with Johnny Klimek and Reinhold Heil.

I have watched this movie 5 times in one week. Infact 2x in one day. This is the best movie I have seen for a long time. I am planning on learning German and visiting Berlin to find my true love. ''Benno''? :) I am trying to find the other movies that Benno Furmann has been in: Wolfsburg (2003), Naked (2001), My House in Umbria (2003) if anyone knows how to get these please email me.
This movie is wonderful for those who do and those who don't speak German, like foreign movies, read subtitles blah blah blah. So get rid of all those excuses and see the movie already! The cinematography is fantastic, the acting is superb. The story is original and captivating and I watched it 2x within a 3 day period because I loved it so much. It's a must see for everyone, not just those who are foreign film enthusiasts.
My boyfriend and I both love this movie, if you're thinking about getting it, just do it, you'll love it too!
i was deeply touched by this film.franka potente and benno furmann were spectacular. this simple but complicated love story is not a fairytale but a realistic fable about the struggle for love. love breaks all barriers,love takes away our grief, frees us from our fear,and shows us the way to live our lives to the fullest without fear.
This has probably been the most amazing movie I have ever seen. I wasn't disappointed at all throughout the movie and highly recommend it.
This film is so diferent from the usual predictable movies that come out of Hollywood. It's like a breath of fresh air. Beautifully filmed with complex real characters.
I'm completely In love with Benno Furmann. My vacation will be well spent next year In search of my soul mate. God how I love you.
