Lisa and Suzanne are teenage girls. In 1994, Übung am Phantom wrote: “The gliding, ‘empiric-lyrical’ camera works at partialising, decontextualising and empowering the ‘woman’ as eternal object.” And yet ”The minimal gestures and facial expressions expose beneath their enigmatically photographed surface two persons whose autonomous life is respected by the filmmaker”. (Noll Brinckmann / Mo Beyerle)
