Nicolette Krebitz
Germany 2016 / 97’

In this case, the title certainly does not lie: this film is a wild and unfettered display of imagination. Suffice it to say that the main character has an erotic dream in which she falls into the arms of a wolf, which is only foreplay for what comes next. Ania and the wolf also get together in real life despite everyone and everything. With her defiant attitude to the world, Ania is unable to find a place for herself among people. She cannot understand their hypocrisy, pretending to be someone they are not and trying to hide their impulses and instincts. Her four-legged bridegroom has no problem with this-he does not have to rely on menacing looks so as to inspire respect or to pretend that he is interested in more than fresh meat and sustaining the species. This wild, hipster film represents one of the most interesting voices from among the contemporary protest generation. With grace and style, Nicolette Krebitz gives the finger to capitalism and its offspring: corporations, loans, and other forms of enslavement.
