Face to Face with German Talent


Two women are pushed to their limits in this gripping drama featuring terrific performances from its female leads. Intriguingly showing two points of view on the same story, it opens with the experiences of Elena (Chara Mata Giannatou), a young Greek woman living in Germany who reluctantly takes work as a nanny for Tessa (Jördis Triebel) and her husband Jan (Benjamin Sadler), who are struggling to adjust to being working parents after having their first child. When a terrible event happens, Elena is plunged into a state of extreme stress, and the focus shifts to Tessa, whose world will be even more rocked by the situation that unfolds.


Promoting empathy and understanding of others, this film from acclaimed director Christian Zübert looks at culture clashes and class dramas within a dramatic story that will keep audiences on the edge of their seats.
