How Difficult to be Adult

Germany, 1956 (MIFF 1957, Faith and Fantasy)

Director: Wolf Hart

The natural, almost animal life of an infant is compared with the everyday life of an average inhabitant of a large town. The contrast emphasizes the unnaturalness that has become a habit, the overburdening, the haste, the hurry, at the same time indulgently criticizing with a somewhat ironic smile.
