Ana, Mon Amour

by Calin Peter Netzer

The latest film by Golden Bear winner Calin Peter Netzer.

Toma meets Ana while they are both studying literature at university. Ana has a mild neurotic disorder and suffers from panic attacks. Toma follows her to every dark corner she ends up in, he fights his parents when they reject her, he accepts being a father and marries her, he becomes her babysitter, her driver, her everything. Toma appears to be in control of the couple's relationship, when in fact he just gravitates around a woman he can not understand, pushing his endurance to the limit, trying to save her.When Ana overcomes her fears and becomes adapted to the outside world, Toma remains alone, trying to put the pieces of the puzzle together, striving to understand the whirlwind that he has gone through.

Press Quotes

One of the most ambitious, impressive and satisfying films in this year's Berlinale

There's no doubt that the film will impress wherever there is an audience for substantial, highly adult cinema

A gripping and ferociously bitter account of falling out of love

It's an interesting and quite tragic saga, as if Linklater were to cut his Before trilogy into a single film
