Elfriede Jelinek - Language Unleashed
"Claudia Müller's screen portrait is a stroke of luck." (KLEINE ZEITUNG)
"Let off the leash in this documentary is not only the language of Elfriede Jelinek. The images, too, unfold a free, associative stream that carries the film and gives it an experimental feel." (SWR2, Julia Haungs)
"One is enchanted from the first minute while watching Claudia Müller's successful film portrait." (WELT AM SONNTAG)
Claudia Müller's film about Elfriede Jelinek, who in 2004 became the first Austrian writer to be awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature, focuses on her artistic approach to language. Multilayered and associative, the film approaches the art of its protagonist with her own linguistic compositional procedures. With the participation and voices of Ilse Ritter, Sandra Hüller, Stefanie Reinsperger, Sophie Rois, Maren Kroymann and Martin Wuttke, a multi-layered and fascinating film portrait has been created.
