DRII WINTER ist eine bildgewaltige griechische Tragödie im Alpenraum. Streng kadrierte Bilder bieten eine Bühne, die die Laiendarsteller:innen unbefangen betreten. Ein Chor strukturiert die Geschichte der Berglerin Anna und ihrer Liebe zu dem schweigsamen Marco, der von den Dörflern schräg beäugt wird, weil er vom Flachland kommt und noch dazu nicht trinkt. Das innige Glück der beiden wird jäh gestört: Ein Gehirntumor nimmt Marco die Impulskontrolle, seine Persönlichkeit verändert sich, die Beziehung droht zu scheitern. Den Liebenden fehlen die Worte für ihre Sorgen und Gefühle, doch ihre Gesten sind von mitreißender, sanfter Zärtlichkeit. (Maria Marchetta)

In Anwesenheit von Michael Koch.

Marco and Anne are a young couple living in a remote Swiss village. He is an outsider, coming from the flatlands to help out at a farm, she is a divorced bartender with a young daughter and thus a sort of outcast according to local moral standards. Their love story is passionate and simple. Suddenly Marco’s behavior starts to change due to a illness, beginning a journey that will test their love and pull at the entire fabric that keeps the small community together.
Masterfully interpreted by a non-professional cast, DRII WINTER is a powerful tale, punctuated by a choir and observed with the calm ineluctability of fate. But if its structure is reminiscent of a classical tragedy, its story remains very contemporary: that of a community that can no longer connect with its land. Marco seems the only one capable of bonding with nature, of listening to it, while everybody else (including the crew of a Bollywood movie) is too focused on exploiting it to see its immense, fragile beauty. The passing of the seasons and the shifts in Marco’s condition mark the calm pace of a film that shows the slow dissolution of a community beneath the impassive majesty of the mountains. (Rebecca De Pas)
