Tanderadei. In 1921, the war is just over. The Film dreams still reveling in images. Of forest, water, and obsession with youth, before "Lotte working at the Bauhaus," in the historical school, especially the Show to the disadvantage of women.
Two sisters and ride through the forest. The pregnant mother of two is shy, the other, Lotte Brendel (Alicia von rittberg), has a treasure that can't hide it: curiosity. There's a crazy bevy of the cyclists raging inside over to the river: naked, playful, easy to young. The worried sister is angry, so only the customs running around, but loose from the "Bauhaus", the new art school in Weimar. Lotte is not effective but secretly delighted, although she says that. The images of the film reveal it. She wants to take off like the other dresses, she wants to be free. You can feel the generosity of the exposure, you can feel the new time. She wants you to hold on to with art.
An exciting opening for a rousing Film. We are in the process, when the TV-fiction brings back a major Moment of women's liberation in Germany: The women take the right to be trained as artists.

The "Bauhaus"-producer Benjamin Benedict, Nico Hofmann, but also the book (Jan Braren, Grimme-prize for "Homevideo"), and Director Gregor Schnitzler ("Soko Leipzig"), and camera man Christian Stangassinger know what you have rode on the mountain: an actress from the Subject of history is not overrun. Forgets in your game, what was yesterday and what is today convinced.
The Bauhaus student Paul Seligmann (Noah Saavedra), an amiable and in dealing with women, well mannered, soft young man, takes on Lotte's.

There she stands for a Moment equal to the impressed Itten, not in the shadow of a man, but directly in front of what should be art. For turf wars between men and women is the time this Enthusiastic actually, much too bad. But the plot puts her in this direction unexpectedly, many of the stones in the way. Women are to be deported in the weaving, the men, the workshop places will be reserved.
Lotte, the talented carpenter daughter, developed a wooden construction toys that children can put together a world of its own, a kind of Lego-precursor. Manufacturers are interested, but the Bauhaus Director Walter Gropius (Jörg Hartmann) is Lotte and her classmates at the looms. Hartmann plays melancholic, and torn on the question of gender justice. Principles on the lips, his own career in the head. For women such as Lotte, not a reliable supporter.
To Weimar, in Dessau, for the protagonist of the path to success is not without a professional insult. It is less the infidelity of the husband, the power to create the artist, it is to be Suspended, as a woman in the profession. The artist clearly Unbegabtere the architecture of a beginner Lotte is of the essence almost of a joint project.
The Movie invents the fictional Couple a happy ending: Lotte and her Jewish husband Paul in time to emigrate to Israel.
