Storyline

The European equivalent of "The Return of the Secaucus 7," this Swiss film looks at the lives of several men and women in their 30s as they confront the slim gains of the "revolutionary" sixties. Max, a dissatisfied copy editor; Myriam, a redhead into tantric sex; and Marie, a supermarket checker who gives unauthorized discounts to the elderly, search for renewed meaning on a communal farm. The title character, a six-year-old child, is the carrier of their hopes for the future. Written by Mark Pritchard <mark94110@yahoo.com>

Quotes

TV News Anchor: To explain all the smallest bit of matter is so filled with faith that it must be considered the beginning of life, to explain what worin dieser glaube besteht, is impossible. All one can say is that this faith is the very essence of things and relies on nothing.

It's a great time to revisit this film.
7 July 1999 | by (Wilmington, DE) – See all my reviews

I first saw this film when it was new. When I saw the title in a local video store, I couldn't resist the chance to see it again on the eve of Jonah's 25th birthday. Some of the political rhetoric is dated, but in some ways it's amazing how little has changed. The film is in some ways about taking stock of one's life. And seeing it twice, almost 25 years apart, certainly helped me to do that.
