Out Takes preview: Frauensee

Posted in: Movies
By staff - 14th May 2013

The opening night women’s film for Out Takes 2013 is Frauensee, a ‘high voltage’ German feature revolving around four women at the aptly named Women’s Lake. Watch the trailer and read more here.



What could be lovelier than Women’s Lake – a magical summer setting near Berlin? Rosa, perhaps. She’s the slightly melancholy guardian of the lake, spending her days in a boat, trapping fish and watching for poachers. Or her lover, the polished and prosperous Kirsten, with her perfect cottage on the shore of Frauensee. How does their relationship work, and what effect will the two young lesbians in the canoe have on it all? Thoughtful, complex and beautiful.


“Four sexy leads show more than just skin in this leisurely, lakeside weekend, as they explore the boundaries of modern lesbian romance.” – Frameline

“The result is crackling tension between the four women, fuelled by flirting and manipulation. There are confrontations but not in an exaggeratedly erotic or overly emotional manner. It is Zoltan Paul (“Undercurrent”, “Gone”) in his unhurried drama who offers a hypothesis rather than a realization, concerning the question of trust and distrust in the partnership and the opportunity to negotiate freedoms.” - Filmstarts

“In the wonderful scenic backdrop of the Brandenburg hinterland, the skilfully orchestrated ensemble playing unfolds, the high voltage fed by the very different protagonists.”- Blickunkt:Film
