The ground under the feet in the Berlinale-competition : my sister, My blemish

Normal is crazy good. Anyway, if you live so disciplined crazy as Lola. Hundreds of hours of work per week, die-hard sports in the early morning, work, eat, around, jetting. With the end of twenty, the management consultant is more in Rostock, where you have prepared with your Team, the restructuring of a company, as in their posh apartment in Vienna. If only there were not this dangerous Chaos factor in Lola's supertop check would be inner-life. The schizophrenic sister Conny. It lands after a suicide attempt in the psychiatry and uses every opportunity to put Lola under strong pressure. Not long, and the high heels stöckelnde business woman boldly forward into the Vary.

What is the price for the high-power efficiency , the demands of the Big Business of the consultant companies? This is the question the Austrian filmmaker Marie Kreutzer in "The ground under the feet". In the cinema, they have explored in the last few years, John Naber, in its rat sharp-capitalism Satire "the time of the cannibals" and Maren Ade in "Toni Erdmann".

Kreutzer made it as Ade and the cold, emotionally notoriously loss-making business of the world to the warm cosmos of the (dysfunctional) family. The relationship between parents and children, but especially between brothers and sisters is a constant theme of the 1977 in Graz-born Director. Since 2011, than you loose with "The Father," their debut at the Berlinale.

A pleasant casually-staged Pair

And so, the paranoid Conny, to free them from the cruel psychiatry run in the by Valerie Pachner hard and soft played Lola in every begging call, the trauma of one of the dead parents and the sick big sister abandoned girl. Strange only, that the nurse at Lola's call-backs, always claimed that Conny has no phone.

Just to understand that Lola's team leader Elise (Mavie Hörbiger), she has a secret affair, begins the same, questions of family predisposition, as Lola revealed her the reason for her increasingly distressed behaviour.

It is one of the successful shades of feelings of Insecurity-filled movie that is not clear is whether you wonders of loving care. Or whether the demand has only strategic reasons, because of the transportation proposed performance-winner may have absolutely no Defect. At least no, not with the pill cocktail held in check, is for experienced Consultants as Elise to basic food.

the two women are a pleasant casually-staged Pair, gives Lola in Kreutzers to plump-described gender war, by the way, no benefits. Unconditional loyalty image seems to be in this profession not intended to volatile places of work and commitments are, to obscure the wheels of the On - and descent. Her struggles against either scheming or flirtatious top dogs Lola must survive on its own. Alone, these perfidious attacks to justify each character in the decomposition.

childhood patterns among sisters, efficiency versus disease, woman's love, men against women – Marie Kreutzer has made in their naturalistic Drama too much. The scenes between the sisters are coherent. And Pia is Hierzegger a compelling, not-at-all for the sympathy winner taugende Schizophrenic. In the cinema, blood ties provide more identification than money flows.
