Die innere Sicherheit

Christian Petzold Germany, 2000

Slappy McGee's rating of the film The State I Am In

Amazing coming-of-age story. It's not about the mystery of the parents' crime as much as it is about the young girl's realization of self. Her discovery of what's important and what she believes, what she has to do to hold on to those beliefs and ultimately what kind of love is she willing to give (and to receive). It's so textured and intricate. I just love it.
