Die Unberuhrbare / The Untouchable / No Place to Go (2000) DVD5
A moving portrait of a woman's life, Oskar Roehler's evocative film is like a dark, serious version of It's a Wonderful Life. The aging novelist Hanna Flanders (Elsner) loses her place in the world when the Berlin Wall is dismantled in 1989. Her books are not getting published anymore due to her radical political views, and her old world glamour sits at odds with the gritty realities of post-communist Germany. So she reverts to her past, packing up her Munich apartment and moving to Berlin to be with her old boyfriend (Gwisdek). But he has a new life as well, so now she's homeless, wandering in the bleak Soviet landscape, relying on the comfort of strangers and eventually revisiting her parents and her ex-husband (Glowna) in an effort to make sense of her life.

The spirit of RW Fassbinder presides over this intense, personal drama. Roehler based the story of Hanna Flanders on the life and death of his mother, Gisela Elsner, a well-known German writer.
