“A Godsend” (Ein Geschenk der Götter)
Germany 2012–2014, director: Oliver Haffner, colour, 102min., German with English subtitles
Anna, an actress, unexpectedly loses her job at a small German town theatre. She can't expect much help from the local employment agency – but as it so happens, there is an administrator at the agency who, while not very militant, is enthusiastic about theatre. Anna takes on the job of teaching drama to eight long-term unemployed people. Initially, none of them are particularly enthusiastic about it, nor are they exalted about the drama “Antigone”, which Anna wants to rehearse with them. But then the skeptical and difficult individuals manage to draw together and form a collective after all, giving all of them renewed hope. A GODSEND is a tragicomedy, where the stage is the setting for a collective restoration of the self-respect lost by each of the individuals.
