Storyline

Konraad, 83, has written a letter to his relatives saying he wants to die. Maria, Konraads daughter and only child, refuses to discuss her fathers wish. Instead, she wants to move him to a flat for elderly people. Her two grown daughters Sabine and Eva have problems of their own. Sabine has a troubled marriage and her eldest daughter Haas is too wise for her age. Eva is in therapy, recovering from an abortion. Ernst, Marias husband, is the only one who takes an interest. He decides to help Konraad realize his last wish. In doing so, he crosses his wife and increases the already existing distance between them.

Konraad's descendents are all very caught up in their own worlds. But they obviously have to take a stand on this matter and take a closer look at themselves. They find out that there is not much left of the ties that bind them. They find themselves isolated; they have all come to a dead end. Something has to change.

Wolfsbergen is a film about people who seem to have lost the ...

Worth watching for Nanouk's remarkable abilities as a director
4 October 2007 | by hideme666See all my reviews

I saw this at the TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival) and it was definitely a highlight for me.

Do NOT watch this movie when you're looking for something that allows you to "sit back and relax". It's not exactly fast (but, that's not a bad thing in this case!!!) and, if you're used to the action-adventure type movie and are more engaged by action than by other elements of a movie, this may not be your cup of tea.

That said, it is a worthwhile movie to watch. Nanouk Leopold manages to tell a masterful tale and force you to think about death, dying and family relations using her abilities as a director. Little dialogue makes it a film that can easily be enjoyed by Dutch speakers and sub-title readers alike (I suspect, I am bilingual so I can't provide a 100% objective commentary on the experience with subtitles).

This story is really told by the director's unique vision -- if you're able to devote a few brain cells to watching this movie, I would strongly recommend it. It's slow but never seems to drag.

PS the literal translation of wolfsbergen into English is wolf mountains.
