Das Gefrorene Meer

His father’s frequent absence is a source of great sorrow for eight-year-old Marco. Even on Christmas Day he’s leaving – to work, according to Marco’s mother. Marco, however, suspects his mother’s bickering to be the real reason. When, later that day, Marco is sure he spotted his dad from a bus window, his confusion is complete. Are his parents keeping something from him? Or is he fooled by his own longing? Marco puts himself and his parents to the test…

Film notes

The Frozen Sea is a film about the perception of a 8-year old boy which is deformed by the lies of his parents. His fragmented perception makes him insecure to a degree that he has to choose either to trust his parents or to trust himself. A film about the first big loss of confidence in the life of a child.
