Storyline

Siblings Karin and Simon are visiting their parents and their little sister Clara. That evening, other relatives will be joining them for dinner. Over the course of the day, the washing machine is repaired, people sit together at the kitchen table, carry out an experiment with orange peel, talk about lungs, and sew on a button that was deliberately torn off. This sequence of family scenes in a Berlin flat complete with cat and dog creates a wondrous world of the everyday: Coming and going, all manner of doings, each movement leading to the next, one word following another. It is a carefully staged chain reaction of actions and sentences. And in between, silent gazes and anecdotes about experiences. The people act oddly even-temperedly; their dialogues are direct and unemotional. Even the pets and the material surroundings play a part. Some objects seem alive as if by magic. Commonplace actions and familiar items appear absurd and eerie in this narrative cosmos. Putting the absurdities... Written by Birgit Kohler

I liked it
3 March 2014 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

I have seen this movie at Istanbul film festival.I didn't know what it was going to be about before i saw it.However,it didn't take much time to understand.There is a family in a house in the movie,and the movie shows the chain of events that happens in an ordinary day which is not supposed to be an ordinary day since there is a dinner with their relatives on that evening.The movie gradually became more and more interesting for me because I saw similar things with my life.How everything becomes ordinary,what kind of simple and unimportant things you become obsessed with and again what kind of simple things could make you happy.Also,it is shown that what kind of thoughts you think everyday.It's a slow movie,it basically shows people's way of thinking and behaving.I don't think I could write a spoiler even if i tried,but i enjoyed it.I hope this was helpful to you.
