But her world is turned upside down overnight when she learns that her unborn child has a serious heart defect and will be born with Down syndrome. Together with her husband Markus, she now has to make the decision whether she will opt for a late abortion in the sixth month or give birth to the mentally and physically disabled child. The otherwise strong woman is torn and poses agonizing questions: “May I judge the life and death of my child?” Long discussions within the family and with her mother Beate follow. In the end there is a decision – but it is not one with which Astrid and Markus are completely at peace, either way not..

When they learn that their child will not be born healthy, they are at first optimistic that they will be able to meet this challenge – although they have no idea what awaits them.

After many discussions and arguments Astrid realises that the decision that will affect all their lives must be made by her alone. What complicates matters further is the fact that, as a successful entertainer, she is in the eye of the public and the media.

Well developed drama to illustrate relevant dilemma’s around dealing with a possibly handicapped fetus before its birth
Saw this at the Berlinale 2016, where it was part of the Competition for the prestigious Golden Bear. The script was well written and the drama developed gradually and evenly paced. Apart from being a well fleshed story about matters of life and death, this movie is also a much better exposition on the topic than any documentary can do, and also a much easier format to let us remember the arguments in favor or against. Sufficient dramatic ingredients were added to have all the choices presented to us, giving us the chance to determine for ourselves how we would have thought and acted in similar circumstances. Particularly that some women saw her as a role model, due to her reputation as a comedian, turned the public opinion into an extra factor in the equation. Of course, all the usual suspects (parents, friends, relatives, business contacts) also have an opinion in the matter, and are usually not very shy to offer their viewpoint. In this case her 8-year old son formed an extra complicating factor too, and his involvement in the discussion was a bit late, but not too late.

We saw viewpoints shift one way or the other along the running time, especially when not only Down syndrome was the main issue, but also heart problems, necessitating several operations on a baby only a few months old. To allow the arteries around the heart to grow to a size feasible to be operable, the baby should have to survive at least one month before the first operation, and still another five months before the second more definite one. The baby is bound to suffer several months in the meantime, a frightening foresight indeed.

Eventually, as per German law, the mother has the last word about an abortion, which by the way is lawfully allowed in this particular case for even a far advanced pregnancy as hers was. Until the end we were unsure which choice would be made in the end (no spoilers here). There were no overly sentimental scenes nor was there any tear jerking for that matter. Albeit that some hefty outbursts were not avoided, it was overall very rational, in spite of the understandable opinions and heavy emotions displayed by the protagonists. All in all, a realistic story and an excellent display of nearly all pro and con arguments one can think of.

Review By: JvH48
It’s a matter of birth and death.
A simple film and its sensitive theme. German films usually impresses me and this is another under-noticed film, needs some uplift. Not like a must see, but totally worth it. While I was watching it, I thought the film’s characters turned a simple thing as a too complicate event. But yes, it’s not that simple when it’s related to pregnancy. Of course, it’s different from faith to faith, between believers and non-believers. Then my mind went to the very ancient age. How all the animals shared the earth equally. But humans, a very unique from all, not the same as of now.

Today, every day the technologies upgraded to an even better level. So why do we obsessed with that! To make life easier? Yes. Then there’s always something that stops us benefiting from them. It lies within us, none other than ’emotions’! Why I’m saying all this! There’s a reason that this film’s main purpose to highlight how humans act while there’s a technology to thwart errors in its initial stage itself. But we’re mentally struggling, since life and death or the purpose of the living being was not yet explained by the science.

I’m not a person of god. I don’t believe in souls. I do believe only in consciousness. In my world, it replaces the word soul. But from all, there’s a big difference between pain with conscious and pain without consciousness. A baby born with an empty hard disk. Then it adds all the memories to it when he experiences the things using his five senses. That’s the complicated one. The opposite to it is the abortion. That’s what this film is about.

I might have went a too far from the film, but happy to add some details. If you watch this film, definitely you would choose a side and back it till the climax. So one of the sections of people would get disappointed with the result of the story. In that case, I was neither. The film was not a thriller, though I felt edgy during the last few minutes. I did not know which way it’s heading. Prepared for any unexpected twist. Then it came to an end, and I did not think whether it was any good or bad, except satisfied with the truth, the reality, a slice of life as I’ve seen through this flick.

❝Great. One child’s disabled, the other’s a fascist.❞

A well designed story and the characters. It revolved around a celebrity. That was a perfect start. Adding a big star, who goes through a difficult time. She’s at 24 weeks pregnant with her supportive husband and a young daughter. The life is so smooth, until one day when the couple discovers the baby could be born with a disability. They decide to have it by preparing for it in advance. Then another blow brings a fresh challenge for them as a couple, as a family and with a strong emotions. Now the life’s upside down. From there where it all heads are the rest of the story to tell its viewers.

Definitely a powerful theme. As I already mentioned, the people split over what the film characters fighting over. Hence it won’t receive well in all the quarters. But there’s a fact to consider, which this film mostly borrowed from for its ending. I would say a well done film. Filmmakers make films to make money, to make people laugh, to make see the truth and various other reasons. I’m not saying it was an awareness, a message film, but totally a fact based. Like how in the modern world, even compared to a couple of decades ago, they determine things accordingly. But remember this is not the first film to deal with such theme. We’ve seen similar films, and most of them were a sub-plots.

One of the highlights of the story was, it was not about a single person. It is about a small family, and how each one reacted to what they have found was very accurately portrayed. Since it was a present era based, where thing are different from before generation, the story had some flaws. I mean not a bad writings or something, but the relationship between each others. Once again, what I meant was the woman empowerment. Directed by a woman filmmaker, told the story from a woman’s perspective, I felt this was what lack in the real society as well, particularly in the developing countries and/or religiously obsessed ones.

I liked everyone in the film. The pace was good. Overall an engaging storyline with a fine runtime. You could watch it for many reasons, or maybe none, but not a bad film to ignore. I don’t think so they should have improved it a little more. In my eyes, it was a perfect little flick. One of the rare for sure. That does not mean I’ve rated it out of out. But who knows, what I’m saying could be overwhelming personal opinion, that once watched it you might realise that.
