Winterschläfer

Director: Tom Tykwer Composer: Tom Tykwer, Johnny Klimek, Reinhold Heil With: Ulrich Matthes, Marie-Lou Sellem, Floriane Daniel
A tiny attractive town in the mountains. Nearby the town lies a warm and enchanted villa. Not far from the villa there is a farm, slowly deteriorating. The winter landscape’s eeriness reflects the unpredictability of the emotions. Almost hallucinatory events begin to unfold and engulf four young people: Laura, Marco, Rebecca and René who are staying in a chalet near the farm run by Theo. Everything can happen in the shimmering expanses of snow. Who will remember afterwards what really happened that morning? Only the facts are real: a stolen Alfa sunk in the snow, a sick nag that bas been shot dead and a little girl lying in a coma. The hunt is on. Nothing will ever be the same again.
