It Takes a Family
It Takes a Family is a family drama about secrets and repressed memories. Director Susanne Kovacs is the grandchild of Jewish Holocaust survivors, and the daughter of a German mother and Danish Jewish father. Her grandparents saw her as a child of the enemy and a constant reminder of their tragic past. When Susanne starts asking difficult questions, she discovers that the war never really ended in her tormented family; somehow, the horrors of the past were always present as a deafening, yet unspoken, trauma.
