KARAOKE is the story about Liselotte, an elderly actress looking for a new
role in theatre or film. In a series of scenes we follow her as she visits
different casting-sessions. Without significant success, she interacts with
the people around her. Her only hope remains an old friend Vera, to whom
she has not spoken to for years.
As a contrast to films about life change and transformation,
I wanted to depict a life situation that does not change.
In KARAOKE we follow the main protagonist, an elderly actress,
as she desperately tries to get a role. The everyday and somehow
banal situations, which she encounters, eventually amounts
to a personal tragedy. KARAOKE is a film about aging and acting.
On a more general level, the film reflects upon the search for identity
and difficulties of finding ones place in society.
