According to the girl from the film’s German title, melancholy girls can be typified as follows: they roam around, talk, have sex and nothing else happens. Yet there’s enough to see in the 14 episodes that make up this post-modern comedy. They are all characterised by a new encounter and an attempt by the girl to find resonance with people in the world around her. The episodes are as theatrical as they are colourful: from a ride on a unicorn through a neon-lit industrial area to aerobics with babies; nothing is too crazy in Susanne Heinrich’s fairy-tale, playful and absurdist world.

However, behind the façade of pastoral shades, tautly orchestrated sets and poppy neon lights, there seems to be a void. In her quest for the next place to sleep, the girl feels like a tourist in her own life. And in the conversations with her bed partners, she experiences no bonding, but only an empty echo of herself.
