Dietrich Brüggemann powerful exploration of the limits of faith won the Silver Bear for Best Script at the 2014 Berlin Film Festival. Maria finds herself caught between two worlds. At school the 14-year-old has all the typical teenage interests. But at home with her family she follows the teachings of the Society of St. Pius XII and their traditionalist interpretation of Catholicism. Everything that Maria thinks and does must be examined before God. And since the Lord is a strict shepherd, she lives in constant fear of committing some misconduct. Whilst Maria’s mother takes a tough line in compelling her daughter to stay on the path of righteousness, her father is often reticent and stands back during critical moments. Conflicts intensify as arguments erupt with teachers and doctors. Desperate to please everyone, Maria soon finds herself trapped in the crossfire. What unfolds is a powerful and austere examination of the dehumanising impact of a doctrine when it is enforced to a near-bullying degree. ★★★★ "Packs a hefty emotional punch" - Mark Kermode, The Guardian
