A Wonderful Catch

OT: Mutter, Kutter, Kind

Matthias Tiefenbacher // Germany, 2021
Fiction Feature // FF2021



Four generations and one conflict: In a town on the Baltic Sea, a family seeks for ways out of their messy past. Fisherwoman Heddi (Anneke Kim Sarnau) can’t believe her eyes: her daughter Eva is on the doorstep, having avoided contact with her for years. And she has a 10-year old son, Jannis. They claim they’ve only come to wish Eva’s granny Lore Happy Birthday, but in truth climate activist and single mum Eva’s life is going down the drain. Heddi too has battles to fight, both privately and professionally, and now she is supposed to look after her grandson as well? Mother and daughter can no longer avoid dealing with the unsolved questions from their past.


MATTHIAS TIEFENBACHER (*1962) has been a repeated guest at FILMFEST HAMBURG for years, most recently in 2017 with Wenn Frauen ausziehen.
