The movie you are looking for is La folie des Grandeurs . If you live in Gent (Belgium), I think I know you ? Enjoy the movie!

Hello, I once saw a great film in which LDF climbs in the wall of a castle - in which a beloved woman stays. While climbing he shouts in real bad German : name of the lady followed by `ich liebe dich` . Do you have any idea in what film ? If so, please mail me, so I can buy the DVD.
