“Die Fremde” or “When we leave”

The film shows very clearly and blunt that at the end it is very difficult to find out who in fact is the stranger, who has to integrate, and what integration really means. To bring it to the point: integration always is a field of inevitable conflicting priorities. And at the end you get the impression that everybody is a stranger.

2010 was the premier of this really embarrassing German movie film. The main issue is to show how important the basic, human right for self-determination, self definition is. This of course includes the human right for women for bodily autonomy.

The film shows that the woman wants to follow her autonomy and to be part of her family. She fights for both. And she experiences how difficult but also how dangerous this fight is. Just by the steady risk of violence.

It is fight up to the desperate experience of complete exhaustion. An experience which catches everybody in the film, everybody in the family. Finally there is no winner. Everybody fades, everybody loses the, everybody finally gets lost in desperation.

The film shows in a melodramatic way, very intensely and directly, that everybody breaks down under the enormous social and special cultural pressure.
