Continuity

Deutschland / Österreich / Frankreich / Großbritannien 2015/2016, Spielfilm

Inhalt

"Continuity" begins as a straight-forward story of an emotional homecoming and turns uncanny as the two protagonists – a middle aged couple living in a small town in Germany – repeatedly invite different young men into their home to perform an inscrutable ritual. It remains unclear whether the couple has suffered an actual loss – or if their ersatz sons are just a way of staying together.

A total of three different versions of their lost son Daniel spend the night at the family house. Each disappears under mysterious circumstances until we see them all in a ditch at the end – neither dead nor alive, neither in Germany nor in Afghanistan.
