The Line

A line is painted to divide rivals in a warring family drama, circled by ice but told with warm humanity by the great Ursula Meier. Nominated for the Golden Bear at the 2022 Berlin International Film Festival.

Director: Ursula Meier



After violently attacking her mother, Margaret (Stéphanie Blanchoud, also co-writer) is arrested and ordered not to go within 200 metres of the family home, the boundary literally marked out by a blue line. This tempestuous family drama explores both physical and emotional abuse between a musical mother and her daughters.

A decade after winning the Special Jury Prize at Berlin for Sister in 2012, Ursula Meier received a Golden Bear nomination for The Line, her third feature.
