Abstract (Document Summary)

German filmmaker Katja von Garnier's effervescent, 55-minute "Makin' Up" and Louis Venosta's distinctive 35-minute "The Coriolis Effect" add up to an amusing commentary on the state of relations between men and women today. We most certainly are going to hear more from both Von Garnier and Venosta.

Von Garnier's vignette, which won a student film Oscar, is a witty farce about what even the most attractive and vibrant young women have to put up with in the search for suitable men. Maischa (Nina Kronjager), a blond cartoonist, has pretty much retreated from the fray, drawing inspiration for her comic strip from the romantic exploits of her vivacious best friend, a tall brunette nurse nicknamed Frenzy (Katja Riemann, who recalls Geena Davis in her looks and infectious giddiness).
