Compulsively regimented everyday life: Excessive bodily hygiene, cleanliness, and order dominate the daily routine of Ms. Isabel, a woman shielded from the outside world. When the soap runs out on her one day, she is forced to leave her protected temple. Sensitively photographed, Lonora – Eine Seifenoper penetrates the emotional world of its protagonist: An insightful study of uncertainty and loneliness.
