The Unpolished

The Unpolished

The precocious 14-year-old Stevie is continually wrestling with the unpredictable parameters of her parents’ life of excess. When the family moves to a German country town, the girl hopes that at last she will have a normal and regular family life. – Die Unerzogenen shows how a young girl has to survive in the physically and emotionally destructive world of adults who should really be offering her warmth and security. In a powerful yet reticent way, the film provides a revealing picture of a society off the rails, in which the roles of parents and children have been reversed. (Sandra den Hamer)
