Unter Dir die Stadt

Feature Film | DE 2010 | 100' | OV

In the glass towers high above the roofs of Frankfurt there’s a battling raging over people’s money and emotions: While a giant bank plans a merger and a young couple gets settled in the city, a top bank manager meets a young female editor. What starts out as a complex amour fou turns into a dangerous psychological duel about love, power and manipulation. Christoph Hochhäusler’s new drama is ingeniously written, beautifully illustrated with cool, atmospheric images and, most of all, wonderfully acted out: Theatre star Robert Hunger-Bühler is brilliant as the helplessly desperate power broker, and Nicolette Krebitz is convincing as the self-destructive Femme Fatale. The constant jumps between the shark pool of high finance and the characters’ emotional life are creating as much suspense as the radical shifts and turns of the story. With UNTER DIR DIE STADT Hochhäusler creates a precise vivisection of the German high society, which comes just in time for the economy’s record growth.
