A modern love story starring Nora Tschirner (A Rabbit Without Ears) and Alexander Fehling (Labyrinth of Lies), The Space Between the Lines is a mature and thoughtful look at the nature of human relationships.

Emmi would like to cancel her subscription to “Like” magazine via e-mail. But due to a typo, her messages land in Leo’s inbox. When Emmi repeatedly sends e-mails to the wrong address, Leo decides to inform her of her mistake. This marks the beginning of an extraordinary e-mail exchange, one that could only be held between two strangers. Treading the fine line between complete strangeness and noncommittal intimacy, the two are soon sharing their innermost secrets and longings – until they need to face the unavoidable question: Will their feelings, sent and received virtually, survive the test of a real-life encounter? And what will happen if they do?

Based on the international bestseller from Daniel Glattauer and from the producers of Toni Erdmann, this romantic drama directed by Vanessa Jopp is an entertaining epistolary cyber romance like the iconic You've Got Mail.
