Die geliebten Schwestern

Dominik Graf
DEU, AUT 2014
170 min

The aristocratic sisters Charlotte and Caroline both fall in love with the controversial young writer and hothead Friedrich Schiller. Defying the conventions of their time, the sisters decide to share their love with Schiller. What begins playfully, almost as a game among the three of them, soon turns serious as it leads to the end of a pact.
“In his first feature-length drama in eight years, Dominik Graf does not focus on Schiller, the wild and brilliant celebrity dramatist, but instead examines the eternal question: is it possible to live out an unconventional form of love? The cultural hub that was Weimar, the development of letterpress printing and the French revolution all provide the backdrop for this passionate love story. A film which uses luminous, fluid cinematography, stays close to its characters and is modern in terms of thought, action and emotion.” (Berlinale)

In the presence of Dominik Graf (Director) and Henriette Confurius (Actress).
