German Films Quarterly 04/2021

Described as “an elegiac ghost story in four chapters“, Max Gleschinski‘s second feature film centres on Kerstin, a taciturn woman in her mid-40s, who had nursed her father for 20 years until his death and is now slowly finding her way back into life by embarking on a kayak tour through the Mecklenburg Lake Plateau. She is doing her utmost to keep to herself and only speak when really necessary – that is, until she meets and then falls in love with another woman water hiking. But then her estranged brother Thomas appears on the scene to confront his sister and sort out the dispute about their inheritance. Kerstin, however, doesn‘t show any signs of wanting to resolve the matter...
