Aloys

Switzerland, France, 2016
Drama
  • Swiss German
  • English

Synopsis

A lonely private investigator is contacted by a mysterious woman who pulls him into a mind game known as “telephone walking”. Fascinated by her voice, Aloys discovers an imaginary universe that allows him to break out of his isolation.

Our take

Weaving dreams, perception, and the imaginary into a panoply of resourcefully imaginative filmmaking, Tobias Nölle’s award-winning debut is a true delight. It is a tale of one man’s loneliness that is uniquely both enlightening and incisive in its excursion into the labyrinth of the human mind.

Critics reviews

Nölle’s sharp, shivery aesthetic — with its highly formalized framing and dreamy use of color — lends real distinction to a curiosity that has already found traction on the festival circuit.
