James's rating of the film Baden Baden

Equally sorrowful, playful and amusing. This full length weaves together snapshots similar to those that were presented in Lang's earlier shorts, revisiting topics of unquestioning love, troubled romance, feminism, the end of youth and deriving strength. It seemed at first that there wasn't enough to make this feature length, but the character of Ana builds satisfyingly over the time for a masterful close.
