Storyline

Fine suffers from not being seen but she also does her best at not being noticed, even though she is an acting student. At night, when her mentally handicapped sister Jule cannot get to sleep and stereotypically bangs her head against the wall, Fine turns the recorder on and gives a firework of singing, acting and dancing. However in the acting school she lacks self confidence to uninhibitedly storm the stage. After the well known director Kasper Friedemann invites Fine for an audition, she convinces him with her acting. But he also sees in Fine an injured being (vulnerable personality) that matches his vision of Camille, the main character in his next play. Fine gets her first big part that she in no way wants to lose. She slips into another identity. As Camille, she awakens to her femininity, but through Camille, Fine also loses her own strengths that she shows every day in dealing with her sister Jule. Because Camille is not only self-conscious and sexually active but at the same ... Written by Anonymous

"Consistently gripping and strikingly compassionate..."
27 March 2012 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

German screenwriter and director Christian Schwochow's third feature film which he co-wrote with his father Heide Schwochow is a German-French co-production which was produced by Jochen Laube and Fabian Maubach. It tells the story of Josephine Lorenz who lives with her mother Susanne and her disabled younger sister Jule. She goes to a drama school and is auditioning for a part in a play called "Camille" which is to be directed by a famous theater director named Kaspar Friedmann. Josephine's first audition doesn't go that well and she thinks she has lost her opportunity to get the part, but after meeting the director for the first time and impressing him with her acting skills, she surprisingly lands the leading role. Josephine is ecstatic about having gotten the part she desired, but as she begin to know the character she is going to interpret and the director's strict demands, she utterly dedicates herself into meeting Kaspar's requirements and getting into character. Her mother who spends most of her time looking after Jule is happy on her eldest daughter's behalf, but the deeper Josephine sinks into the core of her character "Camille", the more distant she becomes from her family.

Finely and engagingly directed by German filmmaker Christian Schwochow, this rhythmic fictional tale draws an intimate depiction of a complicated relationship between an actress and her director and an authentic portrayal of a young woman who whilst preparing for the main role in a play, lays her heart and soul on the line, exceeds her personal boundaries and takes on the persona of a severely afflicted character that drags her out of her shell. While notable for it's naturalistic milieu depictions, sterling production design by art director and production designer Kobita Syed and cinematography by cinematographer Frank Lamm, this character-driven and dialog-driven psychological drama which contains acting within acting and theater within film, is an invigorating study of acting and character development which examines themes such as family relations, coming-of-age, devotion and love.

This tense, atmospheric, romantic and multifaceted study of character which is somewhat reminiscent of Darren Aronofsky's "Black Swan" (2010), is impelled and reinforced by it's stringent narrative structure, the magnificent and impressive acting performance by Danish actress Stine Fischer Christensen that surpasses her memorable acting performance in Susanne Bier's "After The Wedding" (2006), the riveting acting performance by German actor Ulrich Noethen and the reverent supporting acting performances by German actresses Dagmar Manzel, Anna Maria Mühe and Christina Drechsler in her second feature film role. A consistently gripping and strikingly compassionate independent film which gained, among other awards, the award for Best Actress Stine Fischer Christensen and the award of the Ecumenical Jury at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival in 2011.
