A Luxembourg-Germany-Austria film co-production will soon arrive in the Grand Duchy’s cinema theaters with a public screening and a cocktail dinner event set to take place at Cine Utopia on February 5 from 7pm.

“Amour Fou”

Feature film / Austria / Luxembourg / Germany / 96 min / 2014
World premiere: Un Certain Regard, International Film Festival Cannes 2014
Directed by: Jessica Hausner
Cast: Stephan Grossmann, Birte Schnoeink, Christian Friedel
Original language: German, with French subtitles

Synopsis

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.

The Hollywood Reporter
found the film to be “complex and exquisitely filmed”, while Variety praised especially actress Birte Schnoeink in the role of Henriette, who “brings a luminous, captivating quality to the role of a woman whose true thoughts, feelings and desires seem to be
forever and deliberately evading the viewer’s grasp.”

French

“Plans tirés au cordeau, d’un contrôle maniaque et superbe, nous voici au temps d’Heinrich von Kleist, le grand écrivain allemand, qui cherche une femme pour mourir avec lui, et la trouve… A cette étrange histoire, à la fois tragique et au bord de la comédie macabre, l’étrange cinéma de Jessica Hausner donne une atmosphère entêtante, fascinante.” Telerama.fr
