CHARLOTTE ROCHE - Exploring Wetlands

Germany | 2009

Seit seinem Erscheinen steht der Roman „Feuchtgebiete“ an der Spitze der Spiegel-Bestsellerliste. Keiner hatte den Erfolg eines solchen „Schmuddelbuchs“ erwartet, weder die Autorin selbst, noch der in Charlotte Roches Heimatstadt Köln ansässige Dumont Verlag, und auch nicht der Verlag Kiepenheuer & Witsch, der das Manuskript abgelehnt hatte.
Synopsis
“Feuchtgebiete“ was on the top of Spiegel bestseller list for about six months. It seems to be a phenomenon, a revolution of the womens treat of sexuality. Why decide so different people to read it? The novel polarizes the audience.
This documentary figures out the intention of writer Charlotte Roche, accompanies her readings in Germany and the publishment of „Wetlands“ in France. German and French readers speak about their motivation to read the novel and their
impressions. The film analizes if there starts a new female revolution or if „Wetlands“ only describes sexual items in a vulgar language. Charlotte Roche, social scienists, gynecologists, publisher as well as well-known people like Harald Schmidt, Denis Scheck or Frédéric Beigbeder talk about their impressions about the novel. Filmmaker Hilka Sinning uses an aesthetic, adequate film language.
