press comment:

 

„If you happened to have seen her in Roland Reber’s new film „The Dark Side of our Inner Space“...the strange acrid edge of her acting talent could not have eluded you. You might have felt in retrospect the dark cry in her visage as though she had crunched her teeth on the worm in the apple of our desire. We saw her exposing the raw fibres of our psychological constitutions, to glare at the hidden contents in the forms that we are, almost with the intensity of a Klaus Kinski face in „Aguirre, the Wrath of God“...This incredible actress is the diminutive Mira Gittner from Munich...And among all her works, the one that would dwell memorable for a long time is her soul-searching act in „the Dark Side...“ as we see light falling on her piercing and timeless gaze while she utters „Where does it start?“...“
