Anywhere Else (Anderswo)

Anywhere Else

No matter where you go, you cannot escape yourself.

Anywhere Else, from first-time Israeli director Ester Amrami, was in competition at the Berlinale in 2014. Noa has moved to Berlin to indulge her wanderlust and do a post-graduate degree in untranslatable words. After a period of reinventing herself away from her home in Israel, revelling in her independence from her loving, yet claustrophobic family, things in Berlin start to sour. Her research is stalled and there is strain in her relationship with her German boyfriend, Jörg. Noa escapes back home for a holiday. But when Jörg surprises her there, her Israeli and German worlds collide, with tense, often hilarious consequences. This is a clever family dramedy covering the tricky period of young adulthood and the transition between new worlds and cultural translation.
