Hausner’s ravishingly stylized comic portrait of the 19th-century haute bourgeoisie follows the romantic trials and tribulations of German writer Heinrich von Kleist (Christian Friedel) as he searches Berlin for that special someone with whom to enter into a double-suicide pact, eventually meeting the terminally ill Henriette Vogel (Birte Schnöink), who is quite a fan of his best-known work, the novella The Marquise of O. Hausner’s consummately realized mise en scène—an astonishing achievement of decor and costuming, at times evoking the paintings of Vermeer—and her knack for capturing the rhythms of everyday life and the humor at the heart of her ostensibly morbid subject yield a film that is moving, funny, and seriously romantic.

Introduction by Jessica Hausner.
