Inhalt

Farland

Although Farland is set in the disturbing atmosphere of an intensive-care unit, Axel and Karla′s story unfolds on a light poetic note.

The film builds on the fascinating interplay between the dramatic everyday events in an intensive-care ward, where life seems to stand still, and the pulsating pace of the outside world, together with the contrast between tragedy and comedy.
Axel and Karla are an ill-matched couple in a borderline situation. The two meet in the hospital. Axel is keeping watch at his son′s bedside and Karla is waiting for some sign of life from her sister. None of the doctors can tell them whether the young couple will come out of their comas after their serious accident. As the weeks of uncertainty, fear and tedium pass by, a peculiar relationship develops between Axel and Karla, sustaining both of them. The questions they put to their unknown counterpart increasingly become the questions they are asking themselves...
