All the stories have a similar tone and common themes. Each character seems to be going through the motions of life while lost in doubt. Each could be each other, only the settings really change. In some way it feels like a European Mike Leigh but without the humour.

Which is not to say it is samey or boring - but it does have a very specific atmosphere throughout and if at anytime I wasn't tuned into that mood it would jar for a bit - but when I was Hermann's stories were emotionally complex and satisfying.
