Gutsy cinema that breaks new ground
| 93 minutes | 2018
Like its main character, a rape victim whose instinctive attempts to repress the trauma only create more problems, this brilliant first feature by German filmmaker Eva Trobisch is a study in unease. As her stifled angst gives way to a gnawing sense of guilt, Janne sees her world gradually fall apart. Carried by its taut screenplay and a blistering performance from the (already) great Aenne Schwarz, this powerfully naturalistic tale serves up a nuanced behavioural analysis suggesting that our worst enemy might be none other than ourselves.Q&A with Eva Trobisch on October 4th
