Even the world of high finance gets personal

The German film Der Boden unter den Füssen was shown in the U.S. with the translated title The Ground Beneath My Feet (2019). The movie was written and directed by Marie Kreutzer.

Valerie Pachner plays Lola Wegenstein, a successful businesswoman. Her boss is Elise, portrayed by Mavie Hörbiger. Elise is also Lola's lover.

Pia Hierzegger plays Conny Wegenstein, Lola's sister, who has schizophrenia. Matters reach a crisis when Lola is at the final stages of an important business deal, and Conny makes what may have been a suicide attempt.

The world of high finance is unknown to me. Others will have to tell you how well it's portrayed in the movie. It looks horrible. For example, in her sleep, Lola is talking about "48's." We learn that this means going two days without sleep to work on business.

Although this film contains lesbian lovers, it's really not a lesbian film. In my opinion, it's about a high-level business executive and her sister who suffers from mental illness. The fact that Lola is in a lesbian relationship is important, but not central, to the plot.

All three lead actors are excellent, but I'll single out Pia Hierzegger, as Lola's sister, for special praise. It's a difficult, demanding role, and Hierzegger manages it to perfection.

We saw this film at The Little Theatre, as part of Rochester's wonderful ImageOut Festival. If you can't find it at a festival, it will work on the small screen.

This movie has a terrible IMDb rating of 6.3. I think that it's much better than that, and I feel comfortable recommending it.

A Sister's Mental Health Crisis...

... causes an overworked workaholic business consultant her own psychological issues as she juggles both in a tale that teaches us the lesson: there are more important things in life to get distressed about than work and looking after your mental health is one of them - and of those around you, if you can find the time.

multifaceted character

Valerie Pachner was great in this movie, and I recognised her instantly from her other movie by Terrence Mallick of the same year, "A Hidden Life". Theres an intense lesbian relationship in the movie, but I didnt feel it was central to the plot - like you do with so many other movies that feature homosexual relationships. Alot of people should relate to this movie, anyone who has strived to do something against difficult personal circumstances.
