Newtown (The State of Things)

Neustadt. (Stau - der Stand der Dinge)

Directed by Thomas Heise
Germany, 2000


Life histories from Neustadt. Life on the edge. A longing for love. Life never works perfectly and is never how you expected it would be. What is normal? What lies slumbering under the blankets, exhausted by day-to-day conflicts? The film is an observation in Germany on the cusp of the new century.

This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
