NO ONE'S WITH THE CALVES (NIEMAND IST BEI DEN KÄLBERN)

NO ONE'S WITH THE CALVES
© WeydemannBros. / MaxPreiss 2021

It's the height of summer in the middle of nowhere in Mecklenburg, Germany. Five houses, one bus stop, cows and nothing but fields. 24-year-old Christin (Saskia Rosendahl) lives on the farm of her long-term boyfriend Jan, 25 (Rick Okon). The exciting post-reunification years that defined her childhood are long gone.
Her relationship is loveless. Her father drinks. Christin, too, keeps the cherry liqueur close at hand, tucked under her car seat. In the shimmering heat of summer, time seems to stand still – that is, until 46-year-old wind energy engineer Klaus (Godehard Giese) arrives from Hamburg and sets the world spinning again.
