Receiving this award is just unbelievable,” Trobisch mentioned.
Las yr’s Younger Abilities winner, Carla Simón, chosen Trobisch to take the stage right here, saying that All Good “will stick with me perpetually. It’s probably the most lifelike portrayals of sexual assault that I’ve ever seen. It’s deep, touching, respectful, it raises questions, it makes you replicate and it’s advised with nice intelligence. The actors’ performances are completely extraordinary, particularly the one by Aenne Schwarz, which is delicate and stuffed with nuances. Eva Trobisch has a particular sensitivity for human understanding, she’s a filmmaker that I actually wish to observe.”
