Jessica Hausner

Amour fou

Austria, Luxemburg, Germany 2014
In German / English subtitles
90 min
For audiences aged 7 and above


An event that could hardly be described as a laughing matter somehow yields a dryly amusing and characteristically layered reflection on the absurdity of what humans call love in "Amour fou," Jessica Hausner's slow-building portrait of the German Romantic writer Heinrich von Kleist and his friend Henriette Vogel, and the fateful steps and decisions that precipitated their 1811 suicide pact.
