In The Bosom Friend Ulrich Seidl has once again given us a character we will not easily forget.

In Sonne, therefore, the director also finally feels free to develop and explore themes close to her heart from the perspective of teenagers who live in a big European city, but who come from all over the world. What, then, does homeland mean?
