Sophie flees to Marseille. She roams the streets alone, taking photographs. As she abandons herself to the city, she finds it impossible to reconcile her previous life with the now... Slowly, characters emerge and weave themselves into the story - then a cut follows - and Sophie is back in Berlin. "All my films are based on the idea that much of life is inscrutable, full of misunderstandings and left to chance. The characters live in contradiction to being at the mercy of chance, and are more or less constantly trying to rebel against it." (Angela Schanelec) The strength of MARSEILLE is the "renunciation of the conventional of narrative cinema. This bracketing requires a great formal effort, a renunciation of convention is not something that just slips by." (taz)
