Siblings Karin and Simon are visiting their parents’ flat in Berlin. That evening, other relatives will join them for dinner. Hectic preparations take place, the washing machine is repaired, people sit together at the kitchen table, carry out an experiment with orange peel, talk about lungs…

MUBI's take

Never mind the curious marmalade cat who ambles in and out of frame: the people here are just as peculiar. Choreographing all the hustle and bustle of a household into an intricate symphony of family life, Ramon Zürcher earned glowing comparisons to Jacques Tati for this impressive first feature.
