Darkly comic, deftly intelligent and deeply profound, Finsterworld explores where others fear to tread... Frauke Finsterwalder's outstanding debut feature film follows five separate idiosyncratic storylines, all subtly connected to each other and combining to deliver a definitive parable on modern German guilt over the Holocaust and the wider state of 21st-century society. Through stylish directing and an intricately clever script, Finsterworld is by turns hilarious, intriguing and incredibly shocking, and will linger in the memory long after you leave the cinema.
