Forest has the look of a film that might have been made by a first-timer with visions of Sundance in her head.
An affecting, very intelligent work, done with an eye for realism and a heart for the lonely, insulted and injured.
Eva Löbau's lynchpin performance as Melanie is a shattering lesson in the tropes of timidity and awkwardness, and serves in taking this cinema of cruelty into as yet uncharted territory.
Tapping in to primal fears of professional ineptitude and social rejection with an almost sadistic meticulousness, The Forest for the Trees is a precisely modulated first film.
Maren Ade's HFF thesis is proof that a powerful, worthwhile film can be made on zero budget when the director and actors are talented enough.
Engaging, low-budget German drama with a strong script and a heart-breaking central performance from Eva Löbau.
For a first film, it's accomplished; for a college project, it's astonishing.
Audiences will cringe at the worst patches of the uneven film.
A very well put together slice of life story showing us a character that always feels one hundred percent realistic.
The movie makes the audience, like many of the other characters in the movie, simply want to get rid of her.
It's impossible not to emphasize with [the main character]...
With friends like this, you'd swear off friends for life.
