Fühlen Sie sich manchmal ausgebrannt und leer?

Feature Film | DE, NL 2017 | 94‘ | German OV

Couples therapist Luisa is torn: her job, her husband, her lover, her best friend – she’s got enough stress for two. So no wonder she’s splitting apart. One morning she finds a doppelganger of herself in her flat: a child-like, innocent version of herself. Now Luisa has to decide if that’s a psychotic breakdown, an existential crisis – or maybe a chance to finally fulfil all her many desires at once. Lola Randl’s satire on modern life and its hidden pitfalls drives a seemingly simple concept to wonderfully weird punch lines. Besides a brilliant double performance by Lina Beckmann, the real catch is the absurdly colourful and whimsically ironic aesthetic that covers up the psychological abysses like sweet, sugary frosting.
