Chance leads the debt-ridden small-time crook Nick into the house of an aging and illustrious psychologist. While the old man works on a lecture about his Nazi past, Nick makes off with and sells the man’s book collection, unwittingly becoming the subject of his research. Benjamin Heisenberg moves increasingly beyond the classic comedy structure into Kafkaesque territory – including a psychological role reversal. It is a double-trouble buddy movie of a personal kind: stark, cryptic and full of wit. www.thimfilm.at
