2013, 103 min, Germany, Dir: Robert Thalheim

There are no easy answers in this bittersweet dramatic comedy about the balance between career, marriage and family. Konrad (Charly Hübner), his wife Christine (Christiane Paul) and their two young daughters are a model Berlin family. Former theater director Konrad now manages the household while family breadwinner Christine works at a hospital. But when Isabel, their nanny from Argentina, arrives with her own set of problems, the entire dynamic of the once idyllic family begins to shift, and Konrad and Christine must reexamine their priorities to their children, to themselves and to each other. In German with English subtitles.
