Short Film Profile

Ich bin's Helmut

Helmut is celebrating his 60th birthday. He's actually only turning 57, but his wife Gertrud has got her maths wrong. While the facade of petit-bourgeois domesticity is gradually flaking, old friends come by and offer some well-meaning advice – a bizarre declaration of love to transience.
