Free Radicals

Directed by Barbara Albert, this 2003 Austrian feature tracks the fate of a woman after she survives a plane crash, weaving together numerous miniplots. At first I thought this was a Michael Haneke knockoff, but it’s more depressing and less edifying than most of those narrative experiments, which is why I eventually tuned it out. In German with subtitles. 120 min. (JR)
