WATCH THE TRAILER HERE

A young and notorious poet in Romantic Era Berlin decides to end it all.  Try though he might, he is unable to convince his skeptical cousin Marie to join him in a suicide pact — go figure. Along comes Henrietta, who finds his plan intriguing and agrees to navigate the uncharted journey towards ultimate love. Amour Fou (Wild Love) – inspired by the actual suicide pact in 1811 of Heinrich von Kleist (who wrote “The Mariquis of O”) and Henrietta Vogel – goes against expectations to become a wry and curious critique of dying for love. Directed by Jessica Hausner (Germany; 96 min)

“…An eccentric, coolly deadpan story of love, including that of the self.

A sharp, light look into the abyss…with finesse and fine timing.

Amour Fou steals under your skin scene by scene.”

Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

 

**** (four stars!)

“A delightful comedy of errors” 

—Indiewire

 

“Dryly funny!”

New York Post

 

“Top Ten of the Year. Hausner’s masterpiece…one of the great films about the nature of love.” 

Artforum

 

“This is movie art of a very high order. It is also, in its quiet way, as grandly entertaining as you could wish.”
