19-year-old Else is on holiday in the Dolomite mountains when she receives a desperate letter from her mother. Her father is on the brink of bankruptcy, and only Else has a chance to save the family, if she can persuade her art dealer friend, Dorsday, to lend her 30,000 Guilders. Else suspects that he will only agree under certain conditions. This turns out to be true. Dorsday will only give Else the money if she undresses in front of him. This immoral proposition throws the young woman into deep conflict, which she avoids by making a surprising and tragic decision. The great prizewinning actor Senta Berger reads Arthur Schnitzler’s novella from 1924, demonstrating that it’s shockingly topical. Else grapples with her own conscience while revealing how she is conditioned by those around her and by the male gaze. In the age of #MeToo, we see this inner monologue in a whole new way.
