short film by Henning Christiansen

Two young lovers experience the conflict of reality and ideal in a glowing autumn forest. Visually oriented towards the silent movie genre, a sonorous off-voice describes the tender luck that lasts until the man compares their love to the perfection of the Italian Novella…
Adapted from the short story by Swiss author Robert Walser.

Broadcast on TV by 3sat in 2007.
