Berlin, the Romantic Era. Young poet Heinrich wishes to conquer the inevitability of death through love, yet is unable to convince his sceptical cousin Marie to join him in a suicide pact. It is whilst coming to terms with this refusal, ineffably distressed by his cousin's insensitivity to the depth of his feelings, that Heinrich meets Henriette, the wife of a business acquaintance. Heinrich's subsequent offer to the beguiling young woman at first holds scant appeal, that is until Henriette discovers she is suffering from a terminal illness. AMOUR FOU is a "romantic comedy" based loosely on the suicide of the poet Heinrich von Kleist in 1811.

Focus on Jessica Hausner at the Lincoln Center
On December 6, Jessica Hausner’s LITTLE JOE will be released in the US by Magnolia Pictures. A good reason for New York’s Lincoln Center to focus on the complete works of the Viennese ”Miracle Worker“ (as the LC entitles the program), showcasing her five feature films, two shorts and an installation from November 8 to 10, 2019.
