Finsterworld 2013
Despite the radiant summer weather that bathes the landscape of Finsterworld all the time, this is a dark fairy tale about the German identity and past. This fluent ironic comedy written by Frauke Finsterwalder with her husband, Swiss writer Christian Kracht, is about loneliness, marginalisation and everyday fascism.
In a suburban idyll that, as always, is too good to be true, Finsterworld introduces several average German citizens of different ages. A police officer in a bear costume. A female documentary filmmaker who is unable to find an interesting story. A pedicurist who carefully sets aside the hard skin removed from the feet of his aged female patient. A rich couple that refuses to sit in a German-built car. A history student uninterested in a class visit to a concentration camp. A wild man training a raven in the woods. In this anthology film, all are bound by family ties or a moment of coincidence in a country where the sun always shines and everybody is beautiful, polite, successful or happy. That is until they reveal their darker side, and we discover that the step from idyll to inferno is a short one.
