Additional Texts

For me Gisela is a story about freedom. What I liked about the novel was the anarchist attitude and its humour. Its nature suggests a film, which cannot be a study of a milieu. The setting is quite abstract, so that the attention is focused on the characters. [...] Georg, Paul and Gisela are not concerned with morality in a conventional sense, that‘s why I am thrilled finding them modern and progressive. In keeping with that, I wanted Gisela to have a non-judgemental, matter-of-fact authenticity. – Isabelle Stever
