Storyline

Marko is in his mid-thirties, has just published his first book, and has been living in Berlin since his university days - far enough away from his parents Gitte and Günter whose bourgeois lifestyle he could never quite get used to. He visits them once or twice a year, mainly to give them a chance to spend a few days with their grandson. His hopes of spending a quiet weekend with the family fall short when Gitte, who has been mentally unstable since Marko was a child, feels so healthy after a homeopathic treatment that she stops taking her medication. Her announcement triggers reserved reactions in the family, and a series of revelations tip his family's structure out of balance. Written by lletaif

Remains
10 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

What does remain? The German title of the movie translated, a movie that was quite successful in Germany in 2012. A reason they played it at the Berlin International Festival, for those who didn't have a chance to watch it. A powerful movie about a family, that doesn't seem that extraordinary. And of course it wouldn't be a good movie, if everything was just peachy.

The acting is phenomenal, especially the parents are really good and well known in Germany too. There is some added drama that seems a bit unnecessary, but the movie does its best to stay away from clichés as much as possible. It does succeed mostly. A drama well worth watching, if you like those that is
