DIR/SCR Jan Schomburg CAM Marc Comes CAST Sandra Hüller, Georg Friedrich
Martha's well-balanced life comes to a sudden halt when she finds out that Paul, the man she loves and has been living with for several years, disappeared without a trace. When the police knocks at her door to identify him, she looses her grip on everything that has existed. Is Paul the man the police has found? Was he a phantom? A lie? As Martha tries to cope with the loss, she meets Alexander who reminds her of Paul. But can he fill the gap? Probing deep into the mind and heart of a woman who is desperately trying to hold on to a broken life, Jan Schomburg' intense feature debut has been described as suspenseful thriller, and a powerful story about coming to terms with loss. A genuine highlight of the 2011 Berlinale with an extraordinary performance by Sandra Hüller.
