AMOUR FOU
Feature Film / Austria / Luxembourg / Germany / 2014 / 96 min.

Berlin, the Romantic Era. Young poet Heinrich wishes to conquer the inevitability of death through love, yet is unable to convince his sceptical cousin Marie to join him in a suicide pact. It is whilst coming to terms with this refusal, ineffably distressed by his cousin’s insensitivity to the depth of his feelings, that Heinrich meets Henriette, the wife of a business acquaintance. Heinrich’s subsequent offer to the beguiling young woman at first holds scant appeal, that is until Henriette discovers she is suffering from a terminal illness. AMOUR FOU is a “romantic comedy” based loosely on the suicide of the poet Henrich von Kleist in 1811.

“Jessica Hausner creates a magnificient film at the heart oft he paradoxes of bourgeois romanticism and conformism at the beginning oft he 19th century.” – Cineuropa.org
