Love and Death

When: Thu., April 9 2015

A young man is not looking for a partner in life but a "partner in death" in Amour Fou, a black comedy from the director of 2009's Lourdes. Set in early 1800s Berlin, the film was inspired by the real-life 1811 suicide of author Heinrich von Kleist. It's shot to resemble a Vermeer painting. The movie, which has been called "one of the great films about the nature of love," screens at 6:45 tonight and again at 8:55 on Sunday night at the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque. Tickets are $9. (Niesel)
