HERSENSCHIMMEN

  • Heddy Honigmann
  • Netherlands, Canada
  • 1988

Maarten and Vera Klein live in the remoteness of the Canadian province. The sea is gray, the snow swirls around the house. It has begun. Whole sentences are forgotten, orientation fades. A fascinating love story set against the backdrop of a threatening diagnosis.
