Your Struggle – My Struggle

(Dein Leben - Mein Leben)

Forty-something and feeling blue? You’re not alone. This sarcastically therapeutic documentary uses the director and his friends as examples of the 21st-century midlife crisis. As they try to define their inner emptiness, they discover that the world isn’t such a terrible place after all.

Is happiness being content with what we have, or do we have to keep searching in order to deserve feelings of joy? Documentarist Marko spends most of his time in front of a computer in his basement office. At home, he’s met by a constantly crying child and an unsatisfied partner. So he and a few of his peers set out to find the roots of their melancholy. The film opens up topics such as a happy marriage, planning parenthood and the impact of world events on family life. Marko and his friends question themselves, their life partners, as well as their parents and grandparents, who still carry the burden of Central Europe’s dark history.
