'Baden Baden' charts the trials and tribulations of Ana, played brilliantly by Salomé Richard, a twenty-six-year-old returning home to Strasbourg for the summer after living abroad long enough to feel out of place everywhere. Like many in her generation, Ana lives a life teetering on the edge between comedy and melancholy. She is strong but full of self-doubt, tomboyish but sweet, temperamental and impulsive, innately clumsy, vulnerable, erotic — and rebellious. Her embodiment of contradictions presents a charming, fascinating and, above all, thoroughly complex portrait of a young person. After her acclaimed shorts, comes this award-winning debut feature from Belgian filmmaker Rachel Lang.
