Production Report featured in
German Films Quarterly 02/2015

A journey of self-discovery and the associated contradictions are at the center of Johanna Pauline Maier‘s second feature UN CAFÉ SANS MUSIQUE C’EST RARE À PARIS which will be her graduation film from the University of Television & Film Munich. A young German woman Anna is in the middle of a life crisis when she takes off for Paris without further ado to restart her life. Once there, she keeps meeting people who claim to already know her, but then Anna meets a woman who seems to be her spitting image. Backed by FFF Bayern‘s fund for graduation films, UN CAFÉ SANS MUSIQUE C’EST RARE À PARIS was shot over three weeks in Paris during March 2015 with a bilingual cast and crew.
