FORGET ABOUT NICK

FORGET ABOUT NICK
© Martin Menke

The only thing that Jade and Maria have in common is their twice unfaithful ex- husband. Because of this legal treachery, the two very different women end up sharing the luxurious loft where Maria once lived, and Jade still clings to as her own. They wage a small war over a very large chunk of New York City real estate, but this is a battle in which words are more valuable, and far more entertaining, than money.


Margarethe von Trotta ranks among the most important female directors in German cinema since the 1970s, during which time she also made a name for herself as an actress. Today primarily active as a screenwriter and director, her most well-known films include: THE LOST HONOR OF KATHARINA BLUM (DIE VERLORENE EHRE DER KATHARINA BLUM, 1975, in co-direction with Volker Schlöndorff), THE SECOND AWAKENING OF CHRISTA KLAGES (DAS ZWEITE ERWACHEN DER CHRISTA KLAGES, 1977), SISTERS OR THE BALANCE OF HAPPINESS (SCHWESTERN ODER DIE BALANCE DES GLÜCKS, 1979), MARIANNE AND JULIANE (DIE BLEIERNE ZEIT, 1981), SHEER MADNESS (HELLER WAHN, 1983), ROSA LUXEMBURG (1985), THE AFRICAN WOMAN (DIE RÜCKKEHR, 1990), THE LONG SILENCE (IL LUNGO SILENZIO, 1993), THE PROMISE (DAS VERSPRECHEN, 1994), ROSENSTRASSE (2003), I AM THE OTHER WOMAN (ICH BIN DIE ANDERE, 2006), VISION (2009), HANNAH ARENDT (2012), FORGET ABOUT NICK (2017), and her first documentary SEARCHING FOR INGMAR BERGMAN (2018), among others.
