What You Always Wanted to Know About Women ...

Director:

BR, NDR, SWR, RBB, 2019, 90 minutes

Filmmaker Katrin Bühlig just turned fifty, making her one of the ca. eight million women in Germany who are in the middle of their life spans. Never have there been so many menopausal women as now. Yet the topic remains taboo. Why? To examine this question, Katrin Bühlig met five women in their “best years”.

After a crisis, Kerstin is finding her way back into life. Menopausal depression had made her despair. But now she is falling freshly in love again.

For twenty-four years, Anne has played the lovely Monique in the German TV series “Die Fallers”. Is she perceived differently in her profession due to her increasing age? In her daily routine at home, she has another role: As the mother of two pubescent daughters – hormonal chaos guaranteed.

As a farmer, Christine doesn’t actually have time for menopause. Discipline is required. But being in close touch with nature, this genuine Bavarian also knows how to properly enjoy the “high summer of her life”.

After numerous adventures, Ulla is accustoming herself to a settled life. Having cared for her grandmother and her father for a long time, she now needs to deal with such topics as death and loneliness.

Beate celebrates being fifty with a blog, in which she shares her lifestyle. Old, invisible, and no longer attractive? Beate aims to prove: We’re by no means ripe for the scrap heap!
