AUT 2014 HD 96
Berlin, 1811. Heinrich Von Kleist is going through, like the characters in his work, a period of profound crisis: and so he has come to the decision to end his life, organising it with a friend, so that death is justified by love. Jessica Hausner (Lourdes), gives form to the extreme consequences of romantic thought, staging that is clear and rigorous. Presented in Un certain regard at Cannes 2014.
