Innovative Cinema Short, AT 2010, Schwarzweiß, 2 min., ohne Dialog
Director, Script, Camera: Friedl vom Gröller
In almost painful directness, Bliss marks a highlight in Friedl vom Gröller’s intimate imagery. An old woman – the filmmaker’s mother – is in a hospital bed, sleeps, and wakes up, possibly for the last time. She smiles when her daughter puts her cheek against her own. Whether their time together has always been cheerful remains unknown. Today, the tired eyes reveal familiarity. A smile and a blissful ending.
