Amour Fou | 2015
Berlin, the Romantic Era. Young poet Heinrich wishes to conquer the inevitability of death through love, yet is unable to convince his skeptical cousin Marie to join him in a suicide pact. While emotionally grappling with his cousin's insensitivity to the depth of his feelings, Heinrich meets Henriette, the wife of a business acquaintance. Heinrich's subsequent offer to this beguiling young woman at first holds scant appeal, that is until Henriette discovers she is suffering from a terminal illness.
