ICH WAR ZU HAUSE, ABER
by Angela Schanelec
2019, Germany, 105 min., German w/ English subtitles
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. An introverted and incredibly powerful film that conjures up associations with Michael Haneke’s more restrained work. Dutch premiere.
