Storyline

How I Learned to Love the Numbers is a New York film and at the same time the study of a young man suffering from an obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). The Berlin filmmaker Oliver Sechting (37) and his co-director Max Taubert (23) travel to New York with the idea of documenting the art scene there. However, the project is quickly overshadowed by Oliver's OCD, and the two directors fall prey to a conflict that becomes the central theme of their film. Encounters with such artists as film directors Tom Tykwer (Cloud Atlas), Ira Sachs (Keep The Lights On), and Jonathan Caouette (Tarnation) or the transmedia artist Phoebe Legere seem more and more to resemble therapy sessions. At last, Andy Warhol-Superstar Ultra Violet succeeds in opening a new door for Oliver. Written by Rosa von Praunheim Film

Magic Moments
15 March 2015 | by SunGoesDownSee all my reviews

I am interested in films about psychiatric and psychological themes since years. "How I Learned to Love the Numbers" about obsessive-compulsive disorder ("magical thoughts") is my favorite at the moment. It is intelligent, haunting, sometimes even humorous and it is without self-pity and mawkishness. The filmmakers point the mental disorder extensively and intelligibly without boredom. Congratulation! I am really psyched. Other good German films about mental problems are "Ein Tick anders" or "Vincent Wants to Sea" about Tourette syndrome. An international classic about psychiatric ward is "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest".
