German Language Film Festival – Die letzte Pointe

(Finishing Touch)

Switzerland's selection for our German Language FIlm Festival!

Poster for the Swiss senior-citizen dramedy Die letzte PointeAt 89 years of age, Gertrud is enviably vital and independent. Her greatest fear is ending her life suffering from dementia and confined to a long-term care home. She’s therefore shocked when George, an elegant Englishman, turns up one day and claims that she wrote to him via a dating site. Gertrud is unable to recall doing any such thing, so she’s certain that she’s slowly losing control of her faculties.

Gertrud decides that all she wants is a socially acceptable end – before she ends up in a clinic. But neither the hospice carer nor the family nor her new admirer George are willing to carry out her wish. This heart-warming and charming film broaches the question of when it really is time to go.
