Description

Loosely based on the famous suicide pact between Henriette Vogel and poet Heinrich Von Kleist, director Jessica Hausner (Lourdes 2009) turns this melancholic material into an absurdly comedic examination of two personalities within an irrational situation. Young writer Heinrich is deeply affected by depression and is seeking a soul mate to conquer the inevitability of death through love. Unexpectedly he meets Henriette, the wife of a business acquaintance suffering from a terminal illness.

Amour Fou is a romantic comedy like you’ve never seen before.
