Gala Premiere AM HANG now in Swiss theaters

24. October 2013

The film adaptation AM HANG by director Markus Imboden, which celebrated its world premiere on the 9th Zurich Film Festival is being released today in all Swiss theaters. AM HANG is the film adaptation of Markus Werner's literary masterpiece of 2004.


Felix has hit rock bottom. Since leaving his wife Valerie, the cellist no longer sees the point of living – she was, after all, his one great love. In order to find closure with the past, the now incalculably cynical musician returns to the scene of the break-up – a hotel in Ticino. Here he meets a young lawyer named Thomas, and the two men, whose characters could not be more different, engage in a dialogue about love, loyalty and transience. Thomas also separated from a woman here once, one with whom he had a purely physical relationship. What Thomas doesn’t know is that Felix suspects that this woman was ‘his’ Valerie and in his despair begins a game that is as abysmal as it is confusing. AM HANG is the film adaptation of Markus Werner’s masterpiece of the same title.


The cast of the thriller is filled with well-know actors: Martina Gedeck embodies the female phantom, Henry Hübchen Max Simonischek are the male antagonists.
