Actor: Isabelle Huppert



Werner Schroeter has made Malina an incredibly topical feature film, attacking not only patriarchy, but also the entire society, which is so insidiously hypocritical. A stylistically sophisticated feature film that pays tribute to all the extraordinary women who worked on it. At the K3 Film Festival 2023, as a tribute to Libgart Schwarz and Ingeborg Bachmann.



In Michael Haneke’s Amour (Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival 2012, as well as Oscar winner for Best Foreign Language Film in 2013), there is no place for deep reflections on what human beings have become today. There is no place for the inner torments of talented pianists, adrift families or white-gloved young delinquents breaking into rich homes. Now is the time to focus on one of the most complex feelings, in its purest form.



What we see in Happy end is a crescendo of emotions in full Hanekian mode. There are no heroes, no villains, everyone is simultaneously victim and executioner. Including young people.
