Event Details

“Baden Baden” was directed by Rachel Lang in 2016, is a Belgium/French production with a running time of 96 minutes and screens in high-definition colour.

The censorship rating is M (sex scenes, offensive language, nudity) and it is in English, German and French, with English subtitles.

”First-time director Rachel Lang delivers an utterly distinctive and lively coming-of-age comedy about a flaky French 20-something searching for meaning in her life.”

An “NY Times” reviewer comments: “Very fresh and often very funny.”
