FAH – DENG German Movie Series – Finsterworld(2013) by Frauke Finsterwalder


Date:

5 Nov 2015

Venue:

E4-G053

Description:

This “Heimatfilm” (a sentimental film with regional background) portrays an equally enchanted and disenchanting world, and was one of the most exciting German feature film debuts of 2013. It is based on a screenplay by Christian Kracht, whose first novel was entitled Faserland. The film is set in a Germany that has seemingly been plucked out of time. A land where the sun always shines, children wear school uniforms, policemen dress up as bears and pedicurists make biscuits for old ladies. However, an abyss lurks beneath this beautiful façade – and the film goes on a journey to its depths.
