Official Selection, 2007 Toronto Film Festival

When octogenarian Konrad decides its time to die, it sets off a chain reaction of self-reflection among several generations of his family. His son-in-law Ernst supports his decision, much to the dismay of Konraad's daughter Maria, a politician. Their son-in-law Onno suddenly leaves their eldest daughter Sabine, who's been cheating on him for years, for their emotionally fragile younger daughter Eva. And Onno and Sabine's daughter Haas becomes disturbingly more accident-prone. Sensitive performances and elegant direction allow moments of cool and quirky humor into the dramatic turbulence.
