EVERYONE'S TALKIN' ABOUT THE WEATHER (ALLE REDEN ÜBER DAS WETTER)

EVERYONE'S TALKIN' ABOUT THE WEATHER
© Harriet Meyer

Production Report featured in
German Films Quarterly 04/2019

Clara is 36-years old and thinks she has made it, that she has escaped from the backwoods of Eastern Germany and belongs now to Berlin's intellectual elite. She is doing her PhD in philosophy, her young daughter's father has the kid during the week, she's enjoying an affair with Max, a younger student, as well as a close friendship with her professor and admired mentor, Margot. But as Margot flirts with suicide and Clara, back where she came from, no longer feels part of her own family, she is forced to confront the painful realization that her supposed "rise" has its price.

This is a film about two women who, in their longing for independence, are caught up in contradictions yet still try to impose their own wills on life, with full consequences.
