SOLDIER JANE [Soldate Jeannette]

Posh fortysomething Fanni takes a sports car for a test drive—on a one-way trip from Vienna to the Alps. There she finds work on an organic farm, alongside other dropouts from the rat race. But is the farm community really free of modern society's corruptions? How long can a non-conformist like Fanni fit in anywhere? A longtime assistant director to Ulrich Seidl, Daniel Hoesl creates a visionary debut, offering a cultural critique with puckish wit and crisp style. German electro balladeer Bettina Köster makes key contributions on the soundtrack. Tiger Award, 2013 Rotterdam Film Festival; Official Selection, 2013 Sundance, New Directors/New Films.
