Here it is very nice at the Moment is a triptych. First part, Maria and the World, Ute Aurand filmed Maria Lang in 1995. She just settled in the countryside to take care of her sick mother. Maria Lang directed the second part, Family Crypt – A Love Letter to my Mother, in 1981. She talks about what we more often remain silent — walls, barriers, love. Twenty-two years later, Ute Aurand shot Maria's daily nursing of her mother, aged ninety-six: both filmmakers edited The Butterfly in Winter, which became the last element of the triptych.
