Director Sven Taddicken and author AL Kennedy will be present at the screening on Sun 19 Feb.
A L Kennedy’s spellbinding novella has been brought to the screen in an elegantly crafted production with a standout performance from Martina Gedeck as Helene. Stuck in a loveless marriage, crippled with insomnia and drifting away from her once comforting faith, Helene tries to find some answers from popular psychologist Eduard Glück (Ulrich Tukur). A spark of curiosity between them deepens into something more meaningful. Can Helene convince herself that she deserves a little happiness? A wise, darkly comic reflection on love, hope and the straitjacket of our own imperfections.
