During their summer holidays in Sicily, the relationship of an ostensibly loving couple is put to the test when they meet another couple, also holidaying in the area. Maren Ade choreographs wonderful scenes of emotional honesty, incorporates disarming silences and wins you over with the simplicity of her imagery, in a love story that is a worthy successor to the cinematic legacy left behind by John Cassavetes and Michelangelo Antonioni. Silver Bear for Best Actress and Grand Jury Prize at the Berlin Film Festival.

    The Forest for the Trees

    The Forest for the Trees

    An idealistic young teacher takes on her first job at a school, where she has to face rebellious students, cynical colleagues and her own social awkwardness. What is she willing to do to satisfy her desperate need for human connection? In her impressively mature debut, Maren Ade expertly dissects the agitated psyche of a woman on the verge of a nervous breakdown, in a bitter comedy about the nightmare that is the “modern” educational system. Special Jury Prize of the Sundance Film Festival.

    How generous, hilarious and surprising can the story of a prank-loving father trying to rebuild his failing relationship with his estranged and workaholic daughter be? In Maren Ade's subversive hands, a seemingly simple relationship story becomes a rare cinematic gift that not only rightfully deserved this year's Palme d'Or, but will also be hard to beat as the best film of 2016.
