It's quite spacious.

The mattress is new.

Back there's the bathroom.

- Where're you from?

- From Berlin.

When he saw her human hands he said:

My wife had silver hands.

"Merciful God" said the queen

"it caused my hands to grow again".

And the angel

going into the chamber...

brought out the silver hands

and showed them to him.

Now he perceived that they were

certainly his dear wife and child.

and he kissed them glad and said:

A heavy stone is taken from my heart.

And after eating a meal together

with the angel...

they went home to the king's mother.

Their arrival caused

great rejoycing everywhere...

and the king and queen

celebrated their marriage again.

And ever afterwards lived happily

together until the end of their lifes.

- No, tomorrow night.

- One more. Please.

- No, tomorrow.

Sleep well.

- Mom, can I read another chapter?

- Nope.

- Please.

- No, it's late, Benjamin.

- Good night.

- Don't let the bed-bugs bite.

Thank you.

I have to

be on the WPFD on the 23rd.


Can you pick Benjamin up from school

today? Don't know if I can make it

Of course.

Can we wait with group 4010?

We're not ready yet.

Ah. Be right there.

Thank you.

Computing the investigation

of the incidence risk factors...

and monitory

for the drugs regreations...

that can be detected

with a biochemical test.

Such as

blood induced blood disorders...

and the identification of potential

biomarkers for a drugs regreations.

So, the objective of this research...

is to investigate the value of

laboratory data collected in patient care.

What is it?

Is it a phone?


Well, it's nice, I didn't know

it had a ringtone like this.

I like it.

Um... yeah.

Uh... now we focus on drugs induced

thrombocytopenia. As an example.

First we investigated..

- I'll go ahead and do it.

- Thank you.

I love you.

I love you too.


- I'm sorry.

- It's okay.

I'm late.

I'm sorry.

- Hello.

- Hello.

- Hey.

- Hey.

- So did you start already?

- No.



So, Benjamin's doing really fine.

He's a smart guy.

He's really interested in...

reading and in stories.

- Everything all right?

- Yes.

- You're still coming around tomorrow?

- Yes.

You're early.

I want to look inside.

See you later.


Don't you recognize me?

You recognize me?

Slow down... Madam.

Calm down. Calm down.

It's time.

Oh, I'm sorry.

- We'll continue tomorrow.

- Yes.

- See you tomorrow.

- Thank you.


If I...

Mm, I'm not sure...

It's just...

it's... it's very difficult for him.

For me, too.

But even worse for him of course.

I understand it.

He doesn't trust me anymore.

And of course

I... I know...

I just think...

I mean, if I...

If... if I...

How's it going

with your new medication?

I really don't know

what I'm supposed to feel.

- It takes a while.

- Yes.

Is he going too

with Isaac tomorrow?

I don't know for sure

if he'll be coming.

- I did asked him to.

- Well, we'll see.

- Shall we begin?

- Yes.

Max is a very good lover.

We know each other well.

It's very...

familiar when we...

He knows what I like.

He's very warm, very tender.


We have discovered

a sort of way to...

A way of... things we do.

How we start.

It's not that it's always the same.

I mean, we don't have a certain pattern...

but that is not absolut.

It changes too.

Whether I, or...

he, or...

the way it goes.

And that is actually always...


Can you tell us what the difference is

between Max...

and the men you invited

to your room?


They don't have anything

to do with each other.

It is really something

entirely different.

They are...

They all have something...

Max is a very handsome man,

and he's attractive and...

I want to touch Max always.

That's almost automatic. It's, uh...

Do you mean you didn't really want

to touch the other men?

No. Yes. Yes, I mean yes.

but it's, um... it's different.

It's a completely...

different sort of touching.

It's an even entirely different feeling...

But when... but when

did you decide to rent a room?

Was that before our vacation?

Or did you already have it

on Benjamin's birthday...

when we had that horrible arguement?

Was that actually about this?

- What? Benjamin's birthday?

- Then why would you rent a room there?

Why didn't you

just go to a hotel?

How did you find that room


All the preparations

before you could even start.

I was...

lying in bed and...

suddenly I saw this...

hairy arm.


it was lying on my stomach.

Only then I did realize

I was not alone.

And you still hadn't looked

at the man beside you in bed?

Yeah, afterwards.

He was asleep.

- What did he look like?

- I don't know.

Huge and sweaty.

- And his face?

- I didn't looked at his face.

I was watching the hair

on his arm.

You told us about the man

with bitten nails.

The man

with the hairy body.

The man

with the pockmarked nose.

You chose these men

based on those details.

Why do you think you did that?

Can you give me an example?

Why such a man

with a pockmarked nose?

What did you want from that man?

What did you ask of him?

I think...

I think I shouldn't be saying it.

I shouldn't tell at all.

It only makes it worse.

Madam von Ribeck?

On March 4, 2009, the central medical

disciplinary tribunal...

has made a preliminary verdict.

This serves as evidence

for the final verdict...
