Hard & Ugly – eine Liebesgeschichte (A love story)

Malte Wirtz

*_IN PRESENCE OF DIRECTOR MALTE WIRTZ_* "Shit always comes in the fat pile." Freshly fired from his job because he does not fit into the concept, Et can’t be bothered anymore. Especially not with his life. On a bridge somewhere in Berlin he spontaneously attempts to commit suicide; but just as he laboriously tries to climb the railing, Carla appears in front of him. Carla, just thrown out of the flat without any warning by her fiancée and just as down on her luck as Et, sorts the suicide-to-be’s head out. A casual meeting that leads to a new coexistence. Two outsiders who want to pull each other out of their mess. But can this go well? Discreet in black and white, the Marburger *MALTE WIRTZ* creates a modern urban fairy tale of unsuccessful happiness.
