Filmfest 2004

Axel and Karla meet in a hospital in excruciating circumstances. He is watching over his unconscious son and she is waiting for a sign of life from her sister. None of the doctors can say if or when the young people will come out of the comas thay have been in since a bad accident. In the weeks of uncertainty, fear and boredom that follow, Axel and Karla become close and give each other comfort and stability. Director Michael Klier deftly contrasts the hush of an intensive care unit with the life pulsating outside the walls of the hospital showing the fine line that can exist between tragedy and comedy.
