The State I Am In

A moody drama of adolescent alienation, this 2000 German feature recalls Sidney Lumet's Running on Empty with its story of a 15-year-old girl living on the run with her parents, ex-radicals wanted by the police. Julia Hummer is striking as the lonely teen, whose mother and father forbid her to make friends and whose sense of isolation is aggravated by having to hear them make love in the next room. At one point her father coaches her on the best way to survive a police interrogation: utter silence. When she later pursues a clandestine relationship with another lost soul, a fast-food worker obsessed with Brian Wilson, silence is the best she can offer him. Director Christian Petzold cowrote the script with documentary filmmaker Harun Farocki. In German with subtitles. 106 min.
