Shift to the right: Anke Engelke speaks openly about "concerns"

Anke Engelke (56) is best known as a happy nature and comedian. But she is also "worried" about the current situation, as she explains in the "Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung". "Of course I'm worried, as are probably many people," said the actress. "In addition to the pandemic, which we don't seem to be able to get under control, the war in Ukraine and the still pressing issue of climate catastrophe, we are concerned not only with price increases for gas and electricity, but also rising rents, rising poverty and rising inflation are suddenly more pressing problems than ever," she summarizes.

"I know that I'm privileged, but of course these issues concern us all, as a society," emphasizes the 56-year-old. "The shift to the right in the elections in Sweden and Italy is extremely depressing," explains Engelke. Because the "attitude there" is "scolding each other (...) and not togetherness". This irritates and amazes her: "Are we really so limited emotionally that we become more and more negative and angry with each other instead of taking care of each other, being devoted and helpful?" Asks the actress.

Engelke wants to keep her "optimism" and "naivety and not lose hope that we can manage to change our attitude". The 56-year-old appeals: "If we are really interested in other people's problems, if we actively and well inform ourselves, if we don't join in the rushing and scolding, we have the energy and strength to find solutions. We're not single-celled idiots, we're social empathic creatures, aren't we? There you go."

Anke Engelke's docudrama "Mutter" has been running in German cinemas since Thursday (September 29), which she developed together with Carolin Schmitz (55). In it she embodies eight women between the ages of 30 and 75 who talk about their motherhood. Most recently, Engelke was seen in the film comedies "Enclosed Society" by Sönke Wortmann (63) and "Der Onkel - The Hawk" by Helmut Köpping (55) and Michael Ostrowski (49).
