OT: Winterwalzer

Ingo Rasper // Germany, 2023
Fiction Feature // FF2023



A dramedy about the wondrous power of dance. Since the death of his wife, retired dance teacher Albert Gottwald (Ulrich Matthes) has lost all will to live and meticulously plans his end. But an unforeseen dance class with a completely untalented student thwarts his resolution. What he doesn’t know is that his daughter Ina has hatched a plot to save him. The untalented dance student is psychiatrist Hanne, who is supposed to offer Albert therapy without his noticing. The plan seems to work and Albert finds his way back into life. But then he has to learn with (self-)righteous anger: There are unscrupulous people who shamelessly abuse his trust.
