The filmmaker Lenz has left his native Berlin for the Vosges to research the story behind Georg Büchner’s novel fragment Lenz. But he soon trades the Alsatian landscape for higher altitudes: the urge to see his nine-year-old son Noah takes him to the Swiss ski resort of Zermatt.
"Art can be a risky thing. Mortal danger it can bring." But still... Thanks to an empathetic show of sensitivity and personableness, this film manages to weave those little seemingly banal moments from one man's quaint inner quest into a beautiful visual hymn of veritable life. Touched as a viewer.
