Storyline

Farmer Hanni (Rosalie Thomass) is desperate. Her daughter Magdalena (Romy Butz) complains of illness symptoms, but no one can determine what the child is missing. Most doctors think the girl is a simulant. In her search for a doctor who can finally interpret the symptoms, Hanni is increasingly neglecting her husband (Florian Karlheim) and her two older sons, which her mother-in-law (Gisela Schneeberger) uses to incite the family against her. But Hanni goes on her way, even rolls medical literature herself, and finally meets the endocrinologist Dr. Espach (Sylvana Krappatsch), who can help her. But with a diagnosis and a possible operation with a specialist in New York for Hanni the fight is not yet over. She goes to Munich's district court to take responsibility for all the doctors who have not believed her daughter's complaints. Written by G.P.M

I lived this story, the movie is right on spot!
11 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

"Eine unerhörte Frau" is based on a real story but more than that, it reflects the key points of every such story: What happens if someone dear to you gets sick and it's hard to find the cause? Will you be able to help them? How will the medical community treat you?

I lived through a similar story together with my family. "Eine unerhörte Frau" reflects me and my family's experiences so well that I can guarantee it will give viewers a real sense of such an experience. The acting is acceptable and sometimes very good coming from the lead. I cried through a few scenes, not because the movie is extremely dramatic, but because I lived through those same scenes in my life and that was compelling, and that the lead's acting was spot on...There's also a parallel story involving the main character which is well handled and interesting. Overall, the movie is recommended!
