The Ground Beneath my Feet

29/09/19, 22:15, DANAOS 1

A workaholic business consultant has so far managed to keep her affair with her boss and the existence of her emotionally fragile sister a secret. Soon, her well-disciplined life will fall apart. An emotional dynamite of a film, a high-tension drama, an electrifying portrait of a woman, a psychological thriller on the collision of the self against an unrelenting modern world.


AUSTRIA | 2019 | COLOR | DCP | 108΄ | GERMAN, ENGLISH

Lola works pathologically endless hours, as a business consultant for human resources. She is one of those professionals that get to decide how many people should be fired or, as she puts it, making sure a company is viable so that less people become unemployed. She describes herself as single, orphan, childless person with no siblings. But she is not, she has a female partner (her manager) and a sister suffering from paranoid schizophrenia. After her sister’s latest suicide attempt, her world changes dramatically.

Intentionally cold psychodrama about a world devoid of feeling, a relentless accusation against robotic people shutting off their inner world and concealing their ties. Marie Kreutzer in this clinical, consciously two fold ‘accusation’ deals with a world that, since its people fail, it’s bound to self-destruct. I.D.
