Today is Lara’s 60th birthday, which happens to fall on the same day as her pianist son’s career-defining concert. A failed pianist herself, Lara spends the time before his performance pacing about Berlin—boiling with jealousy, nerves, and pride—trying to get hold of her elusive son.

MUBI's take

Jan Ole Gerster’s long-awaited follow-up to the slacker film A Coffee in Berlin could not be more different. This mordantly fascinating portrait of maternal jealousy and thwarted ambition, anchored by a powerful performance from Corinna Harfouch, gives fresh meaning to the idea of tough love.
