Grave Decisions

by Marcus H. Rosenmüller

The German arthouse hit in 2006

You can never be too young to be a murderer, thinks 11-year-old Sebastian, who's convinced that he killed his mother at the age of 0. The proof is on her tombstone: she died the day he was born! Though his father Lorenz tries to calm him, Sebastian is terrified by the thought of going to hell or spending many long years in purgatory. Since his catalogue of sins is thiiiiiis long, he decides to start doing good deeds in the hope of knocking off at least a few years of purgatory. The results are anything but encouraging: he explodes a rabbit, drowns the family cat, nearly kills an old lady... But when he tries to find a wife for his dad, the heavens finally seem to wish him well: Lorenz and Sebastian's teacher Veronika fall madly in love with one another. The only problem is: Veronika is married. But since Sebastian already killed his mother, it should be a cinch to eliminate a bothersome husband...
