  In 2020, the second most common disease after depression cardiovascular damage will be. The feared, the World Health Organization WHO. But what does this often concealed suffering? Sandra Nettelbeck’s movie worth seeing is a relentlessly open view. “It was hell,” says Helen title character (Ashley Judd) in retrospect once. But those are harsh words, which remain meaningless, given what we witnessed nearly two hours and sometimes miterleiden. In this well-designed and exciting drama told there is at all regardless entertainment needs no embellishment. Helens Depression is a terrible and inexplicable descent from which there seems to be a long time, no escape. That is the disturbing: no one can be blamed, not bad husband, no mobbing colleagues, no one bad mother and no traumatic experience. Like a black curse breaks from the disease. No one has seen it coming, all of a sudden it is there. The demands from the audience, of course, a certain willingness to face the facts. On the other hand have psychic depths in the film fascinating. Director Sandra Nettelbeck (Mostly Martha) keeps the balance between horror and sympathy very clever. She lets us witness the torture, which is preparing a depressive his closest family. But they can also just watch what happens Helen – in the beauty of melancholy, the pain in the blue-green sea aesthetics of a city. They achieved their goal enlightenment, without the intention that we noticed right: to make us acquainted with the accompanying symptoms of a disease that is still taboo. The film is a director of the heart. He is dedicated to her friend who killed himself after a long mental illness. Helen the story of a successful music professor is at the peak of their professional and personal happiness. It is an inner radiation, which lies in the first minutes of film on her face. But then – they do not know why – their life is totally out of control. Was it the meeting with the young cellist, who suffers from the same disease and it just goes bad? It remains unclear, with good reason, for the suicidal depression, which now breaks even with Helen again, can come out of the blue. It leads into a hole, in which only death seems the only salvation: a seducer with magical attraction. And the seemingly only way the unfathomable inner anguish and panic attacks to an end. Gillian Anderson actually had ( X-Files ) will play the title role. But probably it was fortunate that Ashley Judd (Double Jeopardy stepped in) after its cancellation. The actress had to be treated in the year 2006 include for depression and was dealt a similar offensively as in Germany, the footballer Sebastian Deisler. Probably you have to have experienced similar conditions once to the role so nuanced, and credible to play as the main character: the simultaneity of deepest despair and truth of appearances, this terrible shame about their own failure, this unconditional will and not ability. will deliberately raise Sandra Nettelbeck with Helen a wide audience.
