Dir: Marcel Gisler, Switzerland, 2013, 106 mins, Swiss German with English subtitles
Summoned by his sister, queer writer Lorenz returns to his small Swiss hometown. Thinking his only concern is taking a break from writer’s block, he finds he now has to cope with his mother, Rosie, who is increasingly unable to live without help. Infuriatingly, Rosie refuses to accept a life without drink and cigarettes. But a one-night stand with a local guy is set to turn Lorenz’s situation around. As Rosie’s condition steadily deteriorates, Lorenz almost fails to notice that love is knocking on the front door of his parent’s house.
