A movie that’s like a song by Kiss

“ANNELIE is hardly the kind of film that fits seamlessly next to all the decorous Swiss comedies, tragic or not-so-tragic sentimental regional movies or classical documentaries. ANNELIE is different. Courageous, cumbersome and polarizing. It gets on your nerves and hits you in your gut. But it won’t leave anyone indifferent. It is a radical, hard-hitting film. ANNELIE is rock ’n’ roll. It’s a movie that’s like a song by Kiss. It’s either going to make you love it, or just the opposite.” – Many thanks to the Bieler Tagblatt for this great review!

Abendzeitung about Annelie

Fairy-tale like article of the Abendzeitung: “For a year, director Antej Farac worked directly across from the Hotel Annelie and witnessed his neighbors’ strokes of fate, their highs and their lows. “Annelie” is a work of docu-fiction based on Farac’s observations, which does not expose its protagonists, but instead, awakens sympathy for them. It is a look inside the tough milieu of the alkies, junkies and petty criminals that inhabit the post-Hartz IV welfare system, and it has a tragic, almost fairy-tale like ending.”
