Nanouk Leopold / BE, NL, 2007 / 93 min.
Nanouk Leopold made a deep impression with her portrait of a family whose already precarious balance is put to the test by a letter from the paterfamilias announcing he wants to die.
Nanouk Leopold’s third feature film once again focuses on existential questions and relationships. Konraad wants to end his life. The letter he sends to his family to announce his plan acts as a catalyst on the already strained family relations.
