Freiheit  (Freedom)

Germany, Slovaquie  ·  2017  ·  DCP  ·  Color  ·  100'  ·  o.v. German, Slovak, English

A mother goes away, leaving her husband and their two children in limbo. She is driven by a force she cannot ignore: freedom. In Vienna, Nora wanders through a museum, succumbs to a flirtation and then thumbs a lift to Bratislava. Nora conceals her origin behind small lies, changes her appearance, finds work as a chambermaid and makes friends with the young Slovak woman Etela, a stripper, and her husband Tamás, a cook. Meanwhile in Berlin, Philip tries to keep his family and job as well as his affair with Monika going. Against his own convictions, he, a lawyer, defends a xenophobic youngster, struggles with the role of single parent. Philip finds an – albeit unconscious – ear for his worries in the figure of a coma patient... The freedom Nora is longing for becomes Philip’s chains.

This film features scenes that could shock the sensitivity of some viewers.
