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.

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (7)

  • 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.

  • "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.

  • 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.

  • Baden Baden has a breakout performance from Salomé Richard as Ana, a 26-year-old woman looking for direction.

  • 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.

  • A little self-indulgent at times, but Salome Richard is captivating in the lead.
