Angela Schanelec: Showing without Telling


A woman faces a variety of emotional crises as she spends the summer interacting in differing ways with friends, family, and lovers in this drama. Valerie is an author in her early thirties who has just moved to Berlin, while her best friend Sophie will be spending the summer in Rome.

Our take

MUBI is proud to present a retrospective of one of the most important and beguiling, yet under-seen contemporary directors: Angela Schanelec. We begin with this tenderly enigmatic drama that reveals a group of friends, family and lovers dispersed yet connected as people yearning for fulfillment.
