Ring mamma!

Call Mom!

 
Niki ist Mitte dreißig und genießt die Freiheiten des Singlelebens. Sie hat Sex mit ihrem verheirateten Kollegen oder dem jungen Masseur, flirtet auf Tinder und hält ehemalige Dates in Evidenz. So ungezwungen die Beziehungen zu ihren Liebschaften sind, umso festgefahrener und schwermütiger ist jene zu ihrer Mutter. Hier prallen zwei Welten aufeinander, stehen sich zwei Frauen gegenüber, die füreinander große Liebe spüren, aber unfähig sind, sie auszudrücken. Lisa Aschan, schon mehrfach bei Crossing Europe vertreten, setzt dies charmant, unterhaltsam und tief berührend in Szene. (Ines Ingerle)

Niki might be 35, but she lives as if she’s ten years younger—and that means engaging in continuous spats with her mother. Niki works as an elementary PE teacher and has quite the boisterous sex life. Her mother, Sofia, is soft-spoken and unable to sit still or look someone in the eye, so she obsessively cleans to avoid both. Each privately seeks a stronger relationship with the other, but their inability to admit how they feel creates an endless cycle of misunderstanding. Tackling a familiar struggle between parent and child, this Swedish family dramedy will have you rushing out of the theater to @Call Mom!@ (Cleveland International Film Festival)
