Adam und die Deutschen (Die Mühle)
By Tine Rahel Völcker (Germany)
- 1h, no interval
Adam, a Polish Jew, is looking for the Germans and finds them in the bars of the town at the German-Polish border where he lives with his misanthropic mother. She wants nothing to do with Germans. She has to remember the story of the Holocaust.
In conversation with the Germans who wake up in his place, nursing a hang-over, love-hungry Adam bends time and space. But instead of staying with him, Henriette will leave. And instead of emigrating with Rudi, Adam will stay.
In her clearly drawn characters, Tine Rahel Völcker describes what it means to be stuck: not only at this flat, but also in one’s own history, in social roles that one only partly fulfils, in dreams of emigrating and of staying, quite literally, on the borderline.
