A Bonus for Irene

Eine Prämie für Irene

Directed by Helke Sander
West Germany, 1971


The film portrays the domestic and working life of Irene, a single mother with two children, in a somewhat comic-strip fashion. The film was also conceived as a sort of criticism of the “Berlin worker’s film” which primarily followed conflicts in the workplace, and above all concerned males.
