German-Language Feature Film Competition: Not for the Faint Hearted15. September 2012
In the tragicomedy DAS LEBEN IST NICHTS FÜR FEIGLINGE, 15-year-old Kim is confronted with a tragic loss, and the young woman must recognise that walking away from life doesn’t work. Walking away is also not an option for Vanessa: The businesswoman is stuck on an island with the hedonist Sebastian and a lighthouse keeper in the Swiss entry LEUCHTTURM, LEICHEN & PASTETEN – a body in the cellar adds mustard to this bizarre black comedy. Experience how Ben attempts to free himself from a whirlpool of violence and crime in SCHULD SIND IMMER DIE ANDEREN – both shocking and gripping in equal measure. In ANFANG 80, Bruno and Rosa risk a new start in the face of social conventions. With touching humour, they show that love in old age can be without frontiers and full of passion.
