“Family grips us like a bullet in the head.” Thus opens the literary journal of Undine Gruenter (1952−2002), a well-kept secret in European literature. She began keeping the journal in the early 1980s, when she moved to Paris. It provides the starting point for this film d’auteur, which gives direct access to Gruenter’s innermost thoughts. From apartments to hotels, Montmartre to the Channel, streets to alleys, friends to relatives, filmmaker Anita Hugi presents a poetic portrait of the writer.
