Longing for a Kiss
Directed by Julia Ziesche
Germany | 1 hr 27 min | 2016
At the heart of the film are three strong female characters from three generations, teetering on the edge of a nervous breakdown. DORIS still wants to continue controlling the lives of her two daughters, whereby she loses control of her own. Her eldest is in search of herself, not realising that she has already discovered an awful lot. The youngest, on the other hand, has centred all her hopes and dreams on a baby.
