After Leo’s girlfriend dumps him for a Spanish pilot, Leo is desperate to win her back… until he serendipitously starts receiving emails from a stranger trying to cancel her subscription to a magazine. It’s a simple case of an email typo. But when Leo informs this random woman that she has the wrong email address and that he is not, in fact, involved with the failing magazine, they begin regular email exchanges. What starts off as friendly banter soon turns into deep conversations where each reveals their deepest thoughts and feelings. The perfect meet-cute for a romantic comedy, right? The only issue is that Emma describes herself as “happily married,” making her constant correspondence with Leo complicated (to say the least). As their virtual conversations become increasingly intimate, Leo and Emma battle with the idea of meeting up in person. THE SPACE BETWEEN THE LINES asks will their love cease to exist outside of fantasy? Or will it survive real life? (In German with subtitles) — G.S.
