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 ...

Wonderful!
30 August 2008 | by fledermausfourSee all my reviews

I saw this film at TIFF 07 where it was easily the best movie I saw at the festival. It remains one of the best movies I have seen since then. Beautifully paced, it pulls the viewer into its exploration of the various relationships shown that one is left pondering life, the different types of love and family well after leaving the theater. It displays a certain northern European sensibility in how the characters relate to each other, where more is said by what is not said. Subtleties rule the day. This is so refreshing as a contrast to films where everything must be spelled out for the audience.

I have to add that it was also such a delight to hear the director speak after the screening. Articulate and kind - a lovely breath of fresh air!
