Plot:
Yella (Nina Hoss) lives with her father (Christian Redl) after a messy divorce from Ben (Hinnerk Schönemann) who is not quite done with her and keeps on following her, trying to talk about the company they built together and that has been falling apart for a while. But now Yella has found a way out: she has a job offer in another city. But when she arrives there, the job is gone and instead she meets Philipp (Devid Striesow), a business man/con artist and gets drawn into his affairs.

Yella is a weird film and I didn’t really get into it. While it has an interesting atmosphere and good performances, the story itself left me mostly bewildered and not in a good way.
