Das melancholische Mädchen
Director: Susanne Heinrich, 2018, Germany, 80 min.
With: Marie Rathscheck, Nicolai Borger, Nicolo Pasetti, Katharina Schlothauer. In German with English subtitles
Aren’t You Happy? explores through 15 humorous encounters, our post-modern society between precarity and self-marketing, serial monogamy and neo-spirituality, disillusionment and the pressure to be happy. Susanne Heinrich’s debut film merges pop and theory, feminism and humour in a fresh way without becoming dogmatic and always with a wink of the eye.
