Theater 2 (The Roy and Niuta Titus Theater 2), T2
2001. Germany. Directed by Angela Schanelec. With Ursina Lardi, Andreas Patton, Anne Tismer. In the languid heat of summer, a group of Berliners see their lives intersect. Schanelec captures her characters’ relationships, crises, and fleeting conversations in controlled compositions, heightened by the ambient soundscape of the city’s cafés and streets. The director—and, by extension, the viewer—is “just there,” observing as the characters unravel, carried by the ebb and flow of the everyday. In German; English subtitles. 85 min.
