The Invention Of Love
Emily, a young, aspiring but unsuccessful actress sets up her boyfriend Daniel with a wealthy but sick woman to get their hands on her inheritance...
The story behind the production is tragic. The young actress playing Emily, Maria Kwiatkowsky, one of Germany's most promising young actresses and winner of the 'Golden Camera' died suddenly during shooting. The production closed down. The director , Lola Randl, shot another film in the meantime, THE RHINO AND THE DRAGONFLY, which screened last year at Filmfest München. Randl managed to finish the film in 2012 using footage from the first shoot with newly shot scenes, making an altogether new film out of what had originally been planned.
