Marina Antunes [Celluloid 02.17.11] Germany movie trailer news drama

I’m a little perplexed by the trailer for German director Jan Schomburg’s new film Above Us Only Sky (Über Uns Das All) which recently screened in this year’s Berlinale Panorama section. The reason for my confusion is that this trailer seems to be misrepresenting the film. It may be that it’s only focusing on one side of the story but I can’t help but think that people going in expecting some sort of romance will walk away sorely disappointed.

The film stars award winning actress Sandra Hüller as Martha, a young woman in a happy relationship with a man she loves, knows and trusts. Or so she thinks because when a pair or policewomen come knocking at her door with terrible news, she comes to realize that the man she thought she knew was a stranger.

There’s a little more to this story but revealing more of the plot treads on spoiler territory so I’ll leave you to delve deeper if you care to know more. The trailer is a little misleading, the warm colours and feelings it raises seem to go against the thrust of the story, but it is precisely for that reason that I’m interested in Schomburg’s film.

Trailer after the break.
