      Peter Bradshaw Guardian [An] elegant and mysterious psychological drama... Rated: 4/5 Jun 18, 2020 Full Review Wendy Ide Observer (UK) [A] tightly focused psychological drama... Rated: 4/5 Jun 14, 2020 Full Review David Lewis San Francisco Chronicle "The Ground Beneath My Feet" consistently serves as a powerful showcase for the talented Pachner, who manages a performance that is both distant and achingly vulnerable. Rated: 3/4 Oct 10, 2019 Full Review Zoë Rose Bryant Loud and Clear Reviews With acerbic accuracy, The Ground Beneath My Feet devastatingly depicts the disturbances that working women must withstand when prioritizing their profession over their personal lives. Rated: 4/5 Sep 1, 2022 Full Review Gisela Savdie El Heraldo The director shows there's always a layer of pain behind a successful career [Full review in Spanish] Mar 31, 2021 Full Review Yasser Medina Cinefilia It benefits from a compelling performance from Valerie Pachner, but even that can't stop it from slowly falling apart when it engages with topics such as alienation, loneliness, and the stressful business life of postmodernity.

      Agustinus S well written script and good works from the casts. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/11/24 Full Review Joe C A beautiful production and well defined personalities but it begs the question of the characters: Why hide it when nobody cares? She is so good at who she is and what she does, why hide a family issue? Why hide your sexuality? There may be a cultural disconnect between what we perceive the German workplace to be like and what it really is, or the societal perception. From an American perspective, the secrecy would be a bigger problem than the problem itself. Also borrows plot elements seen in the earlier American "Up In The Air," which seemed cheap. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Kevin L This is a fine work of psychological drama in which the demands and viscious competetion of corporate business culture and mental illness are the basis for a charater study on Lola Wegenstein, played exceptionally well by Valerie Pachner. Director/writer Marie Kreutzer does an admirable job of recreating an authentic sense of the often caustic environment of corporate business, with its cannibalistic, paranoia-inducting elements along with the common stresses and demands of such positions. Working 48-hr. 'shifts' in a sense and never wanting to show weakness or inability to be just as good as your colleagues, particularly for women. The tone of the film keeps us grounded in the sense of dread and uneasiness, changing up when Lola is free from the work place and appointments/meetings, as when she's together with her boss and lover, Elise. The role of Lola's mentally ill sister Conny is also well very well by Pie Hierzegger. The big sister is in the debilitating clutches of paranoid schizophrenia, and we sense Lola taking on aspects of instability as well. Is it family history, is it the intense strain of her job at a company in a precarious position? Is it some of both? Nice support work from actors Mavie Hörbiger as Elise, Michelle Barthel, Marc Benjamin, and Axel Sichrovsky. 3.7 stars Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/06/23 Full Review thomas c Plays like a novel, full of ambiguity, bringing some contemporary issues to the forefront but not simplistically answering them. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Drama sobre la vida que llevan muchos actualmente. El trabajo y la sociedad enloquece a mas de uno al punto de perder la idea de realidad. Muy bien trabajado y con un papel espectacular de Valerie Pachner Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Read all reviews
