  What was not in the German press complained that there would be this year not a single German film in competition at Cannes. What has been overlooked over all the wailing throughout, was the significant presence of German co-productions in the different sections on the Croisette. And with My Joy / Schastye Moe is not just a movie with German participation in the competition at the start, the director Sergei Loznitsa lived for many years in Berlin. The film, which will come in Germany with the title My happiness in the cinema, tells of the odyssey of the young Russian truck driver, Georgy (Viktor Nemets), whose journey through the Russian province of a fairytale hell journey through the reality his home is. On the way he encounters corrupt cops who have nothing else but women in the head, a child prostitute who sells her body to truckers, but refuses to accept money Geordie, three robbers in the forest and has other strange shapes. Time and again, the film falls over time in blind alleys and on wrong track changes, for a short time the focus of observation and constructs with such a fragmented kaleidoscope that will be essay rather than narrative and the audience at the end rather confused and in a strange way, leaving behind unsatisfied. Maybe you have it easy to see two or three times to all the open ends and loose ends together into still can. Certainly the most daring film to date competition, however, is probably rather have an outside chance at the Palme d’Or. (Joachim Kurz)
