The story of German writer Heinrich von Kleist and his lover Henriette Vogel in the final stages of their lives. This movie was screened at Cannes Film Festival in the 'Un Certain Regard' section. "The tragedy of 'Amour Fou' is of the quiet variety, and it's one which Hausner has pitched almost perfectly", CineVue's John Bleasdale is enchanted.
