We were particularly impressed by the fact that from the very outset the film disregards the usual documentary chronology and desire for completeness. Furtwängler's Love takes it's time and develops it's dramaturgy in close-up, drawing on the unique atmosphere generated by human contact. That is what creates it's particular rhythm and makes it so moving. It is a very, very beautiful film and - quite apart from any award -
