Der menschliche Faktor

A film by Ronny Trocker.

[Credits] [Tickets & Termine] [Trailer]

Jan and Nina tra­vel with their two child­ren to their weekend home on the Belgian coast to find some peace and quiet. But this is rui­ned by a mys­te­rious break-in when the fami­ly arri­ves. Afterwards, Nina has a bloo­dy nose and Zorro, their son Max’s pet rat, has dis­ap­peared. What hap­pen­ed? None of them is able to give the poli­ce a clear descrip­ti­on of the intru­ders. Back in Germany, the suc­cessful adver­ti­sing agen­cy that this bilin­gu­al cou­ple runs tog­e­ther beco­mes the tar­get of a paint bomb attack. Jan had pre­vious­ly made the sin­gle-han­ded decis­i­on to take on the elec­tion cam­paign for a poli­ti­cal par­ty with popu­list ten­den­ci­es – a move that goes against ever­y­thing Nina holds dear.
Director Ronny Trocker’s second fea­ture film is a subt­le fami­ly dra­ma that smooth­ly tran­si­ti­ons bet­ween dif­fe­rent per­spec­ti­ves of an event. What took place and what it means is thus shown to us in diver­se ways and is con­ti­nu­al­ly expan­ded. As he zeroes in on the sta­te of mind of indi­vi­du­al fami­ly mem­bers, he reve­als the fra­gi­li­ty and poten­cy of indi­vi­du­al perception.
