Heinrich is a melancholy young poet in Romantic Era Berlin who determines his best way out of despair is to end it all. Recently diagnosed with a terminal illness, Henrietta, fascinated by Heinrich’s controversial “The Marquise of O,” finds his plan intriguing, and she agrees to navigate the uncharted journey towards a suicide pact with him. Amour Fou – inspired by the actual suicide in 1811 of Heinrich von Kleist and Henrietta Vogel – goes against expectations to become a wry and curious denunciation of dying for love. Official Selection - Cannes Film Festival.

Critics Consensus: Amour Fou risks overpowering its deceptively impactful story with its remarkable visuals, but ultimately forms a fascinating whole.
