Bye-bye Bavaria!
Filmfest 2008

Author Herbert Achternbusch feels surrounded in his Bavarian homeland. Government and people revolt him, he doesn't enjoy poaching anymore, his girlfriend falls in love with a hunter, a reporter hounds him, the poetry has gone out of his soul. The bloodhounds, his wife, the hunter and the reporter chase him off to Greenland. They all suffer their end in Greenland. Through a telescope, the author sees his wife in Sicily just before the vast space of ice devours him as well. Weltvertrieb Filmverlag der Autoren "In this somewhat experimental satirical black comedy, a renowned and sensitive poet and writer is fed up with the crudeness of his native Bavaria and, in a well-publicized move, says he refuses even to die there."
