Die letzte Pointe

by Rolf Lyssy Special Screenings

89 years of age, Gertrud is enviably vital and independent. Her greatest fear is ending life in a care home taken ill by dementia. Wherefore she is shocked then when suddenly George, an elegant Englishman turns up one day and claims that she wrote to him via a dating site for the elderly. Because he has proof, and Gertrud is unable to recall doing any such thing, she is certain that she is slowly losing control of her senses. She decides that all she wants is a socially acceptable end – before she ends up in a clinic. But neither the hospice carer nor the family nor her new admirer George are willing to carry out her wish. Rolf Lyssy’s most recent directorial piece broaches the question of when it really is time to go. A heart-warming and charming film about family, life and death.
