The Marquee Film Festival: Amour Fou (2014)

  • amourfou

Austria/Germany | 96 minutes | DCP | Dir.Jessica Hausner

In Berlin, during the Romantic Era, young poet Heinrich wishes to kill himself but with a woman that loves him. Heinrich meets and makes a connection with Henriette, the wife of a business acquaintance, who is living a nice if boring life. Heinrich's offer to Henriette, to join him in a suicide pact, at first holds little appeal, but an unexpected change may push her towards Heinrich's plan.

"...steals under your skin scene by scene and through Ms. Schnoeink’s slowly revealing performance as an ill-fated heroine turned biographical footnote."-Manohla Dargis New York Times

"[Jessica] Hausner has softly evolved... into one of the greatest directors in the world"-Scott Tafoya RogerEbert.com
