German Films Quarterly 10/2020

Mia Maariel Meyer’s second feature THE SEED (working title) about the growing economic and social pressures in our society focuses on site manager Rainer who is at pains to meet his family’s needs. His wife Nadine is pregnant with their second child, and the family has just bought a house in need of renovation. But when Rainer is demoted to construction worker, he has to cope with both the private humiliation and the loss of income. While he desperately tries to keep pleasing everyone, he loses sight of his 13-year-old daughter Doreen who has entered into an ambivalent and threatening friendship with their neighbour’s daughter Mara. The pressure on the small family becomes ever greater and eventually leads into a spiral of violence from which there seems to be no escape.
