Soldate Jeannette

Daniel Hoesl

What to do with 600.000 Euros? Not buying a train ticket for one. Or pay the rent arrears. At least, this is what Fanni (Johanna Orsini-Rosenberg) reckons. She ends her bourgeois existence, ties up her hiking boots and starts anew on a farm. To whomever this seems a bit trivial, actually got the right requirements to understand the films subversive humour. Her actions have nothing to do with developing a self-awareness. Fanni doesn't need to redefine her relationship to values and society. She sees off the system with an almighty bang, not the other way around. It is outrageous and puzzling. The idea of freedom, which Daniel Hoesl proposes in his first feature length film, is probably one of the most liberating and radical of contemporary cinema. “There are images of great beauty and the suggestion of a philosophical underpinning. Nothing is really explained, and the meaning of things is left more to the imagination. Striking visuals created by Hoesl and cinematographer Gerald Kerkletz and the attitudes of the characters are all that’s really offered as clues. The film creates an overall mood and feeling that is opaque but palpable.” (James Greenberg, The Hollywood Reporter) “Soldate Jeannette is a movie propelled by it's cheekyness and slyness, but also by it's respect for assorted greats of author´s cinema.“ (Dominik Kamalzadeh, taz.
