When buying this film, I was expecting your usual Rom-com with cheesy lines and intense, love-filled stares. 'Barfuss', however, was not what I expected. Although generally happy, this film has the serious undertones that create a masterpiece of a plot, with the depth one can only find in German cinema. 'Barefoot' tells the delightful story of unconventional love, and how it may not hit directly, but grows into something very special, indeed. With unique characters that are portrayed well and a plot which is a bit...alternative, 'Barfuss' is a true gem of a film.
