Berlinale 2023. “She Came To Me” as “a magical ode to freedom of speech”

– It is with great pleasure that we will open this year’s edition of the festival with a charming comedy, inspired by everyday conflicts that appear in Western societies. The characters invented by Rebecca Miller, played by fantastic actors and actresses, prefer to draw inspiration from the present moment instead of sticking to imposed social norms, commented the festival directors Mariëtte Rissenbeek and Carlo Chatrian in a statement on January 12. In their opinion, the film is a “magical ode to freedom of speech”.
