Movie Night: Eltern (Parents)
For years, their roles were simply reversed. Theatre director Conrad took care of the household and upbringing of their two children, while Christine tried to work her way up as a doctor. But that's about to come to an end now as Konrad has a chance of directing the "Nibelungen". Robert Thalheim's ELTERN is a brilliantly enacted, well-thought out piece, which injects new meaning into the term "family film".
