Filmfest 2011

When Hannes retires from his job as a janitor, the void that is the rest of his life begins. He is estranged from his family, hardly has any friends and the relationship to his wife has faded. Through drastic events, Hannes realizes that he has to adjust his life in order to help someone he loves. Volcano is a coming of age love story of a 67-year-old man and about dealing with the choices of the past and the difficulties of the present in order to embrace the future. "An old fashioned man, who cannot express his love, is someone most of us, if not all, know... Volcano is also a story about a family and how three generations deal with their past, present and future. All of the main characters in the film have some flaws, no one is perfect. People who love, suffer, get by. Blindly they try to find an outlet for their emotions. Their love. The path can be rocky when you have armored your heart with distance, silence, anger."
