The Handover

Director:Leonhard Hofmann


Run time:13'


A boy is standing between his newly divorced parents. Two car rides and a location in the middle of nowhere. A seven-year-old boy is about to see his mother for the first time since his parents’ divorce. He waits for her at the arranged meeting point together with his father. Leonhard Hofmann’s latest work perfectly captures the nightmare of every child forced into the conflict of a divorce, in a deceivingly simple but tremendously effective drama that transforms the author into one of the most promising figures in new German cinema.
