Yella is a young businesswoman, about to embark upon a journey to a new job in the former West German town of Hannover. But her violent, estranged husband, Ben, does his best to rain on her parade, stalking her at every turn. Unfortunately, even Ben’s terrifying antics fail to break up the dry, lethargic pace of the movie, which suffers from brittle dialogue and pointless, monotonous business interactions.
