THE MOST BEAUTIFUL COUPLE
DAS SCHÖNSTE PAAR
2018, ARTE, 95 min, Germany/France, Dir: Sven Taddicken

Schoolteachers Malte and Liv are on summer vacation on the Mediterranean coast when they are attacked by a group of teenage intruders, a traumatic event that ultimately takes the couple years to overcome mentally and emotionally. Just when they begin to move on with their lives, Malte has a chance encounter with one of the perpetrators, and the couple are faced with a choice: Continue to repress the experience or indulge their fantasies for revenge. Starring Luise Heyer, Maximilian Brückner and Leonard Kunz. “In terms of the emotive arc offered to the viewer, this film does things that are completely unexpected, and in doing so it moves far beyond the usual scope of narratives about recovery or revenge.” - Jennie Kermode, Eye for Film.
