Movie Info

BADEN BADEN charts the trials and tribulations of Ana, a twenty-six-year-old returning home to Strasbourg for the summer after living abroad long enough to feel out of place everywhere. Like many in her generation, Ana lives a life teetering on the edge between comedy and melancholy. She is strong but full of self-doubt, tomboyish but sweet, temperamental and impulsive, innately clumsy, vulnerable, erotic - and rebellious. Her embodiment of contradictions presents a charming, fascinating, and, above all, thoroughly complex portrait of a young person.

Critic Reviews for Baden Baden

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (4)

Writer-director Lang explored the character with Richard in two shorts, and there's a lived-in feel to the portrait that emerges in the visually adventurous "Baden Baden," which weaves darkly luminous fantasy imagery into Ana's mostly aimless hours.

Nov 24, 2016 | Full Review…

"Baden Baden" does make a pertinent statement, one rare in movies today: that being ostensibly aimless in your mid-20s not only isn't the worst thing in the world, but it can also be kind of fun.

Nov 24, 2016 | Full Review…

Lang is uncommonly assured for a first-time director, capturing her scenes in fluid master takes, rarely cutting from one character to the next, letting things unfold at the pace of in-the-moment human feeling.

Nov 22, 2016 | Full Review…

That's not much of a story to build a film on, but writer-director Rachel Lang and star Salome Richard manage to craft an intriguing feature debut filled with keen observations and slices of dark humor.

Oct 3, 2016 | Full Review…

The film plays like it's been methodically configured to snuff out an even marginal indulgence of its characters' emotions.

Nov 20, 2016 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

In its own quiet way, [it] feels like a celebration of the vocation-less of society. Ana may be restless and unsure of herself but she is also keen to work when she can find it, deeply caring of her friends and family, and eager to learn new skills.
