Das Fräulein (Fraulein) Reviews
What separates "Fraulein" from every other touchy-feely intergenerational friendship story are events that are not shown in the movie. All of the major characters are from Bosnia but have all had different experiences acclimating themselves to their new home. Ruza and Mila(Ljubica Jovic) left long before the recent genocide to make better lives for themselves abroad. No nonsense and lonely, Ruza is so used to living in Switzerland, that she uses German when speaking to her fellow Bosnians.(Thanks for pointing that out by the way.) Now that it is safe to return home, Mila and her husband(Zdenko Jelcic) have one eye on returning to their homeland and are saving up to make repairs on their house. Into this mix, enters Ana who survived the Siege of Sarajevo, as many of her friends and family did not, only to badly require a bone marrow transplant in the present.
But the characters were poorly developed, and the plot was pretty pedestrian.
