What Is Love

Directed by Ruth Mader
Austria, 2012


What makes a good life? Five documentary miniatures show different models for dealing with life, for shaping life and love. Job, family and a house with a garden are the central parameters here – five doses of normality with a thin line separating success, happiness and desolation.

  • prestidigitator's rating of the film What Is Love

    in one of the 5 vignettes, a wife asks her husband who is sitting at the table with her if he has a little time for dialogue. he answers "if i understood correctly, you are asking me if i have a little time for dialogue".so it goes. a movie just with people, with people like i've never met before. what a nice present for the audience, to be able to say, at the end, hey, we're not doing so bad, after all.
