When Albert Meisl finds out that his father might not survive the summer, he begins to bring a camera along on his visits to his parent’s house. Without making any aesthetic claim, he documents a caregiving routine marked by patience and benevolence. In the form of observation, Vaterfilm poses the question of how to face the suffering of a loved one. And with that, is more than is promised in the title: a family film, namely, and a moving testament of love until the very end.
