Das freiwillige Jahr (A Voluntary Year)
Encourage by her father, who hopes to save her from a life in the provinces, Jette is about to spend a year volunteering overseas. But love stands in the way of her father’s plans, and the girl no longer knows what she wants.
Imprisoned within a state of urgency, Urs moves like a trapped animal: betrayed by a daughter no longer a child, hurt by a brother who may no longer need him, filled with uncertainty about a lover who wants to claim her part of his life. A contemporary drama about a man clamped in the vise of time, a state only cinema accurately capture, by transforming a teenager’s flight from her father into a dance.Daniela Persico
