In Milena Czernovsky’s and Lilith Kraxner’s outstanding debut film, young Beatrix spends a summer alone in a remote house and does as well as she can (well!), nothing. Refusal, defiance, fear—none of these are really the reason. The search for “something!” even in nothing is not what Beatrix has in mind. Consciously and attentively, the film creates space for a women’s body to be free and to move without purpose.
