GER19 What Doesn't Kill Us

18+ 129 MIN

Synopsis

Maximilian (August Zirner) is a divorced psychotherapist with a head-strong ex-wife for a best friend, two teenage daughters, too many peculiar patients to keep up with and a new dog. Things are set to get more complicated when Max unexpectedly falls in love with his new patient Sophie, a compulsive gambler with a boyfriend problem. The more Max attempts to keep their relationship professional, the more his and Sophie’s lives become entangled, opening up the floodgates to midlife matters of the heart and identity.
Supported by a range of colourful characters who navigate between love, psychoses and hope, this melancholy yet delightful mosaic of stories deals with the struggles and conflicts that come with middle age. Its tender and humorous perspective on the highs and lows that can either save us or haunt us later in life charmed audiences at the Piazza Grande premiere at the 2018 Locarno Film Festival.
