Familie - Een doodgewoon gezin

Short documentary, 1996, 32 min.

Third part of the documentary series of five Familie in which five filmmakers each portray their family. The Schrijber family, at first sight a normal household, turns out to be completely round the bend. The chill between the mother and her three adult daughters has reached absolute zero and all attempts at reconciliation fail. With great attention to detail, Coco Schrijber goes in search of the cause of alienation between the family members. The dry and cynical narrative style gives the end product more of a family black comedy than a bitter lamentation.
