Awards

Cannes 2019: Prix un certain regard

«Dabei müssten die Leute in einen Film wie den brasilianischen „A vida invisível de Eurídice Gusmão“ von Karim Aïnouz stürmen... ein Film über zwei Schwestern, jede rebellisch auf ihre Weise, die sich in den späten Fünfzigern aus den Augen verlieren. Ein Film, der unsichtbare Biographien sichtbar macht (inspiriert von dem gleichnamigen Roman von Martha Batalha) und überreich ist an sinnlichen Details, Gesten, Tragödien und neuen Heimaten.» Verena Lueken, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung


«Un mélo tropical aux couleurs splendides et saturées et aux émotions tragiques, sensuelles et exacerbées.» Grazia
