Amour Fou says
April 24 – 30

Heinrich is a melancholy young poet in Romantic Era Berlin who determines his best way out of despair is to end it all. Recently diagnosed with a terminal illness, Henrietta, fascinated by Heinrich’s controversial “The Marquise of O,” finds his plan intriguing, and agrees to navigate the uncharted journey towards a suicide pact with him. Jessica Hausner's Amour Fou is an absurdist costume drama in the tradition of Luis Bunuel.

"A complex and exquisitely filmed exploration of a man's desire to find a woman willing to die with him." Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter

"Hausner, whose influences include Luis Bunuel and Eric Rohmer...finds new dimensions in deadpan here. Kubrick may also come to mind." ARTINFO
