Zwischen Welten / Inbetween worlds
Inbetween Worlds is a film about the relationship between a German soldier in Afghanistan and his translator portraying the and two different cultures confronting each other within the conflict of war.
It was an interesting, touching film and I liked the “Anti-Hollywood” realistic storytelling about war. The cinematography is a feast of muted sand colors complemented by the costumes and uniforms, creating one of the most expressive visuals of any film from the region.
The Austrian filmmaker Feo Aladag is presenting her second feature at the Berlinale and has received many awards for her first feature “Die Fremde” as well as also acting in various films in the past.
