Synopsis

The stage lights, the applause – Astrid loves being a cabaret performer, as well as her husband Markus. Each decision is taken together, and this one is no different: what will they do with the child that Astrid is carrying, six months pregnant, that she learns it will be severely disabled?

MUBI's take

Silver Bear-winner Julia Jentsch delivers a magnificent performance in this empathetic and unflinching drama. Casting real physicians and specialists, director Anne Zohra Berrached asks difficult questions about a powerful subject, abstaining from easy melodrama in favor of nuanced reflection.
