I am curious about this young german cinema and wanted to explore a bit further. An intriguing second feature with an weird script and a great Jeanne Balibar as usual (she can act in german, no problem, she can do basically everything). Even when it is hard to follow, "Im Alter von Ellen" has a captivating quality. I guess the second half is a bit weaker but never replicate or imitate. Splendid last shot.
