Eva is a single freelance painter. She is in love with a married man. She pretends that she never waits for him, and if he suddenly turns up she acts as if she is surprised. In reality the unresolved relationship is making her so depressed that her work is the only thing that is saving her. In an attempt to break her addiction she enters into a relationship with another man. But the balance she is looking for eludes her, as now she has to choose between the two. But Eva can't: she wants to have an entire life, not part of one. In the form of a sort of filmic diary, Eva now attempts to sort out the puzzle, which is her life.
(...) a successful attempt to generalize on apparently personal-private problems: thanks to the mixture of improvisation and scripted acting, the viewer can easily identify with the vicious circle of dissatisfaction, without in any way being dogmatically lectured to.

02: Ula Stöckl's film portrays in a consciously light-hearted manner the private problems of a young woman, who with the help of a Super-8 camera makes a well-filmed diary. The film doesn't argue theoretically, but rather attempts, in a playful way, to take away the fear of technology. It shows how easy it is to make a film with friends about your own problems. A film, which is moreover interesting for others, in contrast to a written diary.
03: Ula Stöckl's film "Sunday Painting", which was shown at the Hamburg Filmshow, is produced in Super-8 format and attempts to take away people's fear of technology. It succeeds in doing this through its humor.
