Description

Aloys Adorn is a solitary middle-aged private detective who experiences life through his video camera and an obsessive collection of surveillance tapes he organizes and watches at home. But when his father dies, Aloys is left to face the world alone, and his sheltered existence begins to fall apart.

After a night of heavy drinking, Aloys wakes up on a public bus to find that his camera and precious observation tapes have been stolen. And when a mysterious woman tries to blackmail him, offering to return the tapes only if he will try an obscure Japanese invention called ‘telephone walking’ with her, he finds himself either at the breaking point—or on the verge of finally becoming a human being. Winner of the 2016 Berlinale Fipresci Award. “Ambitious and gorgeous…” —The Hollywood Reporter


Director’s Biography

“I’m fascinated with people who live in a parallel universe, people that are still raw and edgy, that don’t try to be like everyone else, or are just unable to do so, because of their fears or limitations,” says Tobias Nölle in Variety. Nölle studied at the School of Visual Arts in New York. His short film “Rene” ('08) won Locarno’s Golden Leopard.
