Synopsis

Arriving without her husband for reasons that are at first unexplained, Anna enters the cosy world of a bourgeois family on holiday. In her mid-forties with no children of her own, Anna is unrelated to this extended family, which belongs to her old school friend Verena. Phone calls to her husband Alex reveal a rift in their marriage, hiding an unspoken sadness in both their lives. Anna rejects the company of the adults, in favour of the carefree teenagers. They seem to fill an empty space in her life.

Joanna Hogg

She mixes audiovisual experimentation with the shooting of mainstream television products. She made her feature film debut in 2007 with Unrelated, many years after having directed the short film Caprice, starring Tilda Swinton. From here, she began a radically personal filmography that led her to be considered one of the greatest names in contemporary cinema and to win a Jury Prize at Sundance, among others.
