There is a forbidden intimacy – an alleged breaking of taboos that leads to a state-sponsored repression. While Karl engages in a secret affair with his high school crush, he also develops a close relationship with an aging Alzheimer patient while working as a carer at the local hospital. Parsed in two formally distinct structures, Der letzte Tanz merges different perspectives of human relationships, until reality snaps under social pressures. www.stadtkinowien.at
