Synopsis

Astrid, a forty-something mother of two, struggles to regain her balance in the wake of her husband’s death. As new questions confront Astrid from every angle, even simple activities like buying a bicycle or engaging with a work of art, are fraught with unexpected challenges.

Our take

Berlin School auteur Angela Schanelec (The Dreamed Path) won the Silver Bear at Berlin for this entrancing masterwork. Her mysteriously elliptical storytelling captures the deep ache of a family facing a crisis, creating a profound and gorgeous portrait of motherhood and kinship.
