Friday Film Fest: Wunderschön (2022)

Director Karoline Herfurth explores the intertwined lives of five women of varying ages who struggle with issues of body image, complex relationships, failing marriages and societal expectations. Frauke in her 50’s feels undesirable and ignored by her husband. Her daughter Julie wants to pursue a modelling career and tries desperately to comply with the “Schönheitsideal” of the business. Leyla, the daughter of Julie’s manager struggles with weight problems while Sonja, Julie’s sister in law, slips into a crisis after two pregnancies. And then there is Vicky, Sonja’s best friend and teacher who tries to enlighten her students about the value of character, inner beauty and self-confidence apart from their bodily “Äuβerlichkeiten”.
