Refreshingly and sympathetically about women deciding to live in Switzerland as émigré, exile, immigrant, or refugee from Yugoslavia, a country that no longer exists.

The film dwells on different ways of coming to terms with a traumatic past, and it's clearly a subject dear to the heart of director Andrea Staka, who grew up in Switzerland but is of Bosnian and Croatian heritage.

It's a fine movie--spare and moving--and, in its way, also kind of daring.

September 17, 2008
Stylized with a recurring misty focus, the film's economically captured detail shots (gestures, expressions, caught moments) convey genuine sensitivity without the expected weepiness.
September 10, 2008
A tense yet lyrical psychological drama about the brutal effects of extreme historical shifts, war and cultural displacement without a single frame depicting historical cataclysm, yet where the past is always present even in life's most private moments.
June 13, 2008
As a character study, this feels as real as a knife cut, slicing to the heart of shattered dreams, long-forgotten hopes and aspirations which may go unfulfilled.

Sensitively drawn and lensed with special attention to characterization and tone, Andrea Staka's Golden Leopard winner Fraulein introduces a strong new voice in Swiss cinema.
February 1, 2007
With outstanding performances and a keen eye for detail, Fraulein continues to expand the cinematic exploration of the heritage of the Balkan Wars from a female point of view after Grbavica.

Murky drama about three displaced immigrant women with deep emotional scars ...

It seems disingenuous to call Fraulein a film when it's more like a glossy fashion magazine layout.
