Margarethe con Trotta's name has been sunonymous with high-quality cinema for over twenty years. She sees filmmaking as a critical analysis of society and a way of experiencing oneself. This view is rooted in the '68 student revolts and the '70s women's movement. She deliberately rejects formal experiment, preferring to use the conventional reources of classical narrative cinema in order to reach the widest possible public. Nevertheless her films have a very personal and individual signature that takes them well away from the mainstream. Because all her stories deal with people who are prisiones of social constraint, their social and personal relationships and needs, and not least their own personality, her films have often been called "prison films". The conflict with reality that triggers the plot arises from rebellion against this prison situation and giving in to a desire for self-realization, dreams of a fulfilled life and a more humane society. These attempts to break out always have their price. As a rule they fail. The characters develop in that they subsequently understand their situation better and have thus taken the first step towards change. Nut Margarethe von Trotta is not interested in conveying messages or offering solutions. She wants to identify problems and reveal reality by exploring human beings in all their facets and showing the relationship between social role, feelings, desires, fantasies, and expectations for the future.
