"Kurt's in his early 30s, a slacker, a good-for-nothing, and an inveterate gambler. His main occupation in life is borrowing money and losing it in the casino. Having blown all his cash again, he suddenly hits upon the winning idea: let a roll of the dice decide what to do! Six choices. Six chances. A system, a structure, not just at the roulette table, but in everyday life. A deceptive guide to truth and happiness... And indeed, luck does seem to be on his side now, especially when he meets the feisty, full-bodied, pill-popping Tanja, who eagerly joins him on his wild and unpredictable spin through life. It's only when they hit rock bottom that Kurt finally becomes aware of what life--and Tanja--really mean to him. As it dawns on him that he may have fallen in love with her, he begins to rebel against the arbitrariness of the die. But their passion has taken them too far now. And the game has to be played to the end..."--Bavarian Film International website

"Germanistik-Studentin wird aus der Bahn geworfen, als sie erfährt, dass ihr Großvater als SS-Mann in Auschwitz diente. Sie macht sich auf eine Spurensuche nach dem Ausmaß der Schuld. Mit bewegter Kamera folgt der Film den Suchbewegungen seiner Protagonistin und lässt sich auf eine spannungsvolle Auseinandersetzung mit der Verantwortung für die Verbrechen des Holocaust ein. Auch wenn dabei einige Unschärfen bleiben, gelingen ihm wichtige Denkanstöße, die unter die Haut gehen. Überzeugend ist er auch als Auseinandersetzung mit den Stereotypen der Erinnerung und des Vergangenheitsdiskurses, etwa Verdränger-Sätzen wie "Die Vergangenheit muss man auch mal ruhen lassen." []
