Besides her ruinous habit of falling love with men who do not love her, Margarethe's tragic flaw is her refusal to acknowledge the cost of the revolution in terms of human lives."-- Allmovie

Jenseits der Stille Beyond silence by Caroline Link ( Visual )
7 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in German and Undetermined and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Lara hat gehörlose Eltern. Da sie als einzige in ihrer Familie hören und sprechen kann, stellt sie von frühester Kindheit an das Verbindungsglied zwischen den Eltern und der Außenwelt dar, übersetzt für sie in den absurdesten Situationen. Als Lara von ihrer temperamentvollen und lebenslustigen Tante Clarissa eine Klarinette geschenkt bekommt, beginnt sie, die Wunderwelt der Musik zu entdecken. Clarissa zieht das Mädchen mehr und mehr in ihren Bann. Laras Abschied vom Elternhaus und von der Kindheit nimmt seinen Anfang ... "In diesem Stoff habe ich die Möglichkeit gesehen, verschiedene Filmideen miteinander zu verbinden. Ich wollte eine Liebesgeschichte drehen und einen Film über das Erwachsenwerden, darüber, wie schwer es ist, seinen eigenen Weg zu finden und ihn dann auch zu gehen. Natürlich wird diese Tatsache dadurch dramatisiert, daß zwischen Vater und Tochter eine gewisse Abhängigkeit besteht. Aber JENSEITS DER STILLE ist für mich kein "Problemfilm", sondern eine emotionale Geschichte über eine außergewöhnliche Kindheit" (Caroline Link). (Katalog Filmfest München 1996) Lara wächst als Tochter gehörloser Eltern in einer kleinen Stadt in Süddeutschland auf. Sie ist die einzige in ihrer Familie, die sprechen und hören kann. Bereits mit acht Jahren ist sie die Dolmetscherin ihrer Eltern in den verschiedensten Situationen. So begleitet sie sie zu Kreditverhandlungen in die Bank und übersetzt sogar die Ermahnungen ihrer eigenen Lehrerin für ihre Eltern.
