Love is a strange (genre-)game, its end—or the prospect of it—merciless. With a refreshing rejection of every tradition of romantic cinema, Marvin Kren and Jörg Kalt confront their protagonists with the tribulations of heartache, zombie apocalypse, and time running backward. Just like the first encounter of two lovers, their cinema, too, moves toward the future through the night Richtung Zukunft durch die Nacht. At the beginning and at the end of the time together—or beyond.
