Marija

Michael Koch | 100min | Tyskland, Schweiz

  • År: 2016
  • Språk: Tyska
  • Text: Engelsk
  • Nordisk Premiär

Intensivt drama i bröderna Dardennes anda om en stark och beslutsam ukrainsk kvinna som vägrar finna sig i sin utsatta situation.

Den mångspråkiga stadsdelen Dortmunder Nordstadt utgör fonden för debuterande Michael Koch’s Marija, där vi följer en ukrainsk immigrant som drömmer om att driva sin egen frisörsalong för att leva ett oberoende och värdigt liv. Hon lyckas lägga undan något varje månad trots sin låga lön, men när hon förlorar jobbet hotas hennes tillvaro. Fast besluten om att inte ge upp låter hon sig bli involverad i andras affärer vilket snart försätter henne i en bräcklig situation. Margarita Breitkreiz fysiskt påtagliga gestaltning av den febrigt energiska och samtidigt tystlåtna Marija imponerar i en film som belyser framgångens offer i en kompromisslös nutid.

- Tobias Åkesson

Regissör: Michael Koch

Born 1982 in Lucerne (Switzerland), Michael Koch studied from 2003–2008 at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne and also worked as an actor. During this time he made the following short films: We Are The Faithful (2005), Poolside (2006) and Polar (2008). All three films were very suc- cessful at international festivals and won numerous awards. Polar received a Special Mention at the 2009 Berlin Inter- national Film Festival and the German Camera Award as well as the German Short Film Award 2009. After his stud- ies he worked as a director for the theater Kaserne Basel. Michael Koch celebrates the world premiere of his feature film debut Marija in International Competition at the Locarno Film Festival.

In 2010 I was in Ukraine for a longer period of time and met a lot of people, mostly young people, who wanted to leave the country at all cost. Their determination to find a way out of a life without perspective was striking. Through a friend in Kiev I heard about a young woman who came to Germany from Odessa. She worked in Dortmund as a cleaning woman, but aspired to open her own nail salon as soon as possible. The urgency with which the young woman fought for her independ- ence and the pride with which she responded to set- backs really impressed me and made me want to examine the subject more closely.
