'Händl Klaus' second feature film about the sudden rupture of the peaceful, quaint life and relationship of a couple unveils the irrational and therefore frightening "blind spot" that is inherent to the human nature. The film is looking to find the return passage to a paradise lost or at least for a way to rationalize the irrational, trying to learn how to live with a truth that cannot be put into words.
This has been honored by the BerlinaleTeddy Award for best feature film 2016, a prize celebrating Queer cinema.'
