»I would compare the place they are in their lives at the moment with the experience of driving into a garage. You've just managed to park your car in the garage, only to realize that it isn’t as exciting as you had hoped – and on top of that, it's dark in here.
Johanna Moder about ONCE WERE REBELS
«Suppress, suppress, suppress!»
There is no escaping normality. In ONCE WERE REBELS Johanna Moder takes a subtle look at the process by which even the beautiful lives of urbane people in their mid-30s are infiltrated by petty bourgeois attitudes. Her second feature film is another witty portrait of her own generation, struggling doggedly for alternative lifestyles as well as optimal versions of themselves… only to end up creating selves which are crippled by insufficiencies.
