Hungerjahre - In einem reichen Land (The Hunger Years - In a Land of Plenty)
Germany (BRD), 1980, 114 min.
Director: Jutta Brückner
With Britta Pohland, Sylvia Ulrich, Claus Jurichs, Heidi Joschko

In her autobiographically tinged film, Jutta Brückner shows the girl Ursula Scheumann, who at the age of 13 begins to doubt the ideal world of adults and the Adenauer era. After her first menstruation, she perceives her awakening sexuality as well as her mother's sexual hostility all the more clearly. At the same time, she discovers that her father is having an affair and is also a hypocrite from a political point of view. With her questions and doubts, however, she reaps only ignorant silence.

Please note: This film includes references to eating disorders and sexual assault.

Language: Original with French subtitles.
