Rosie is an older, divorced professional who has had little luck in love. She finally finds a fitting companion in the form of Adam, a much younger man.

Of course anything is possible with Mother Nature up to her old mischief, and with higher powers at play there's no telling what will come of these relationships

Lebe lieber ungewöhnlich ( Visual )
4 editions published between 1997 and 2007 in German and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ein geradezu exemplarischer Verlierertyp verliert an einem Tag seine Geliebte, die Wohnung und den Job als Reinigungskraft. Mehr durch Zufall wird er zum Geiselnehmer der verwöhnten und gelangweilten Tochter seines Arbeitgebers. Natürlich verlieben sich die beiden ungleichen Menschen auf der abenteuerlichen Flucht ineinander. Vorgeblich eine leidenschaftliche Liebesgeschichte, verliert sich die Inszenierung in selbstgefälligem Aktionismus, der mehr auf Effekte als auf Inhalte zielt. Dabei gibt der Film seine potentiellen Substanzen preis, weil er allzu sehr auf den Zeitgeist zugeschnitten ist. (Lexikon des internationalen Films 1999/2000 (CD-ROM)
