A film by Peter Liechti
«For heaven's sake – what a question!» exclaims the mother as her son begins the conversation; they had avoided one another for decades.
The film traces a reencounter between the director and his aged parents. It is an attempt at a personal revision of the past. In the process, a new view of his parents emerged, which also provides again and again insight into a bygone era. The story of their marriage, however, borders on a classic drama, leaving us feeling forlorn and miserable even today.
