Successful architect Robert has a one-night stand with a mysterious lady in red. The next day they meet again, but Carolin is now a corporate lawyer working on a major contract for Robert and strangely, she seems to have no memory of the previous night. Robert soon finds himself sucked into the morbid world of Carolin and her family''s dark secrets, where sex and death are never far removed, and tragedy seems the only outcome of this decaying bourgeois family.

I just saw this at the Toronto International Film Festival. "I am the Other Woman" was a haunting film that will definitely keep you interested. The film is well laid out with lots of subtle hints and hidden meanings. True, it is slightly twisted, but the several unexpected twists will definitely keep you interested and literally make you jump out of your seat. The lead actress convincingly portrays the vulnerability of her this most disturbed character, while maintaining a sense of fleeting seduction. The movie is rounded out by several enigmatic characters whose sordid pasts are slowly revealed without being forced.

The story is not bad but the film as such is sometimes to unrealistic. Many of the actors though are great, in particular August Diehl, Armin Müller-Stahl and the fabulous Karin Dor who is finally making a comeback! Katja Riemann did not convince me at all, she is just beautiful but not a great actress. In any case, I was surprised that this film with many German film stars did not perform well.

I would recommend to watch this movie since the story is interesting and the film is never boring. If you are a fan of Karin Dor and/or Armin Mueller-Stahl, you have to see this movie in any case. And most people who have watched von Trotta movies before are very familiar with her personal style.
