Synopsis

In a small Austrian village there is a hotel where two sisters grew up. Sonja is now in Berlin; Verena has never left the village. For Sonja, it is time to visit her family and the scenes of her childhood. The reunion slowly but relentlessly brings to light old conflicts between the two sisters.

Our take

Director Götz Spielmann won wide acclaim with 2008’s slow-burning thriller Revanche, but few had a chance to see his follow-up after its festival premiere: A beautifully restrained family drama of sisters split by the tensions between (big) city living and (home) village traditions. Exquisite.
