Contemporary German cinema worth watching
12 October 2014 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

A sharp and thoughtful look at contemporary German approach to dealing with the country's weighted past. Finsterwalder crafts the film with strange and yet ordinary moments that make us think about our own morals, expectations, and judgments. We get a glimpse into the life of each character - a mere sketch - (but a very accurate one at that) and that is enough for us to fill in the gaps and relate to them; the viewer need not be of German descent to understand the inherent turmoil present in our parents' and grandparent' generations; it is all very fluid, very grounded, very human. However life is, with its good and its evil, we have to accept it and keep living - somehow, is what she seems to be saying. An excellent, and daring film.
