Clara, a PhD candidate in her late 30s, is determined to live a self-possessed life in Berlin. She teaches philosophy, has a troubled affair with a student and attends upper-class dinner parties with cutthroat intellectuals. A deep thrum of unease runs through this razor-sharp script, as Clara witnesses the ennui, jealousies and class anxiety of the bourgeoise. That unease deepens further when Clara returns to her rural hometown in what used to be the GDR and suddenly realises she can no longer relate to anyone there. Annika Pinske's absorbing drama wonderfully unpacks the neurosis of a complicated woman caught between milieus.
