Am Ende eines viel zu kurzen Tages

Am Ende eines viel zu kurzen Tages

Deutschland / Irland 2010/2011, Spielfilm

Inhalt

Donald is a different kind of superhero. In his real life he is
sick and feels like a peeled potato. But the 15-year-old has
an outstanding talent to animate with pen and ink a dark
world in which an invincible superhero battles a deadly
nemesis and his sexy sidekick. But while Donald’s cartoon
hero is unbreakable and unable to love, he himself is utterly
breakable and bound for love.



In a rollercoaster coming-of-age film he learns of life
through his unorthodox psychologist Adrian King, discovers
love with the rebellious Shelly and makes peace with his terrified
parents while his time is running out. And so, on the
edge of the Irish Sea and on the precipice of existence,
Donald finds himself in the heart of love: an ordinary superhero
who proves the important thing is not how you leave
this life but how you live it.



With its innovative mix of live action and animation, "Death of a Superhero" tells a blisteringly modern love
story that is tender, comic and truthful.
