* Finsterworld (2013)
Director: Frauke Finsterwalder
Length: 91 minutes
Language: German with English subtitles

An impressive dramatic debut from documentary filmmaker Frauke
Finsterwalder, Finsterworld pulls off the not inconsiderable feat of
deftly adapting a multi-strand novel (her husband, author Christian
Kracht, collaborated on the screenplay) into a dark fairytale of
German identity and miscommunication. A pedicurist (Michael Maertens)
is stopped by an affable cop, whose girlfriend (Sandra Hüller) is a
documentary filmmaker in crisis. The pedicurist’s best client (Margit
Carstensen) has a grandson (Jakub Gierszal) who bullies his classmates
during a field trip to a concentration camp, and so on. Finsterworld
has obviously hit a nerve in Germany, where Die Zeit called it “a
masterpiece.” There is pessimism here, but also hope, in
Finsterwalder’s brave new world. – Eddie Cockrell
