Life Actually

Das wahre Leben

Directed by Alain Gsponer
Germany, Switzerland, 2006


Roland seems to have it all a good job and a lovely home and family. However, all is not well. His wife is more interested in art, and he has little fatherly rapport with his children. He is fired from his job and son Linus manages to blow up the new neighbours’ sculpture and set the house on fire.
