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
Without peer and perhaps the most magical, thought provoking film I've seen in my life and my life has lasted 74 years...so far. The concept, the acting, the dialogue, the music, and the cinematography are all superlative. Hollywood should hang its head in shame. Sometimes I worry about watching a subtitled movie, but in this case, I'm not sure I would want to hear it in English or any other language...and I don't speak French, mores the pity. Perfect in every way. And that little girl...what a treasure. Actually, they're all treasures. Congratulations to all concerned. A new masterpiece and certainly now one of my top five movies of all time. After a few more viewings, it may assume the number one spot. It took a long time, but someone has finally done it--made the perfect film. Thank you so much.
