Cert: 12A Year: 2006 Length: 93 mins Language: German
Director Hans-Christian Schmid turns a sharply observant yet understanding eye towards a fragile human being at sea in a world of moral ambiguity. In her small town in 1970s southern Germany, Michaela, 21, has grown up in a deeply religious family, but she burns to leave home and study at university. There, her first taste of freedom, her budding love for Stefan and her friendship with Hanna crack open the shell of faith and family within which she had always felt secure and protected, so she decides to seek a priest’s help to fight the troubles associated with her strict upbringing.
Stage actress Sandra Hüller won the Silver Bear at Berlin for this stunning emotional tour de force in her feature film debut.
In its subtlety, complexity and dexterity, Requiem is a notably original work.
