In the Basement
People and their cellars are a very unique duo. The new film by Ulrich Seidl explores what people do in their cellars and in their spare time. Whether underground or behind heavy doors and steep stairs, they conceal the everyday life beyond - cellars are home to obsessions, brass bands and opera arias, expensive furniture and cheap jokes.
Ulrich Seidl tells tragic and comic tales of sexuality, fitness, fascism, lashes and dolls. After his large-scale "Paradise" trilogy, he returns with "In the Cellar" - a documentary that takes us on a terribly entertaining journey to the basement of our souls.
