Shot with extraordinary precision and a fine sense of tiny interstices and nuances, “Fünfzehn Zimmer” portrays life in a Berlin hospice. Danka actually belongs to the cleaning staff, but there is always time for a cigarette break or a chat with the inhabitants. These moments widen our perspective, highlighting a used-up life that gathers its last strength here. That’s what makes this place so pleasant and relaxed. If you have to die, then gladly here. As the end credits prove.
