Swatch First Feature Award: "Alles ist gut"

“No means no”. Words that Janne wishes could have stopped Martin from having sex with her against her will. After a class reunion and a drunken, traumatic night, things seems to spiral downwards for Janne: starting a seemingly exciting new job while forcing her to work with Martin; pushing away her mother who fears the worst and keeping her boyfriend Piet at a distance who consequently starts to reject her. While trying to appear strong and putting on a brave face, she alternates between utter denial of what really happened and feeling the devastating physical and mental consequences of her trauma, underlined with a suppressed anger; slowly drifting into a lull of passivity – reflected in a face that shows the nuances of subtle decline, burning itself into our minds. After making several award-winning shorts films, Eva Trobisch debuts her impressive first feature Alles ist gut; with superb acting by Aenne Schwarz. A film that is of utter importance and more relevant than ever; in a society where the value of consent unfortunately still isn’t a matter of implicitness. It’s surely not the last time that we’ll hear of Ms. Trobisch and we couldn’t be more excited to see what she has in store for us.
