Berlin, the Romantic Era. Young poet Heinrich von Kleist wishes to conquer the inevitability of death through love, yet is unable to convince his skeptical cousin Marie to join him in a suicide pact. It is whilst coming to terms with this refusal, ineffably distressed by his cousin’s insensitivity to the depth of his feelings, that Heinrich meets Henriette Vogel, the wife of a business acquaintance. Heinrich’s subsequent offer to the beguiling young woman at first holds scant appeal – that is until Henriette discovers she is suffering from a terminal illness.

Austria 2014, 96 mins, German with English subtitles. Directed by Jessica Hausner.
