SASCHA MAAZ

A film by

KONSTANTIN EGERNDORFER

 

story.

Life no longer has any meaning for Prof. Zisowski. He is in his mid-forties and drinks joylessly into the day when he wants to flee from the spirits of his past. Marie is a single mother with two children who moves in next to the Professor. She quickly begins to take an interest in the unapproachable neighbour. In the beginning, Prof. Zisowski rejects any attempt to approach her. Over time, Prof. Zisowski hopes to fill his inner emptiness with Marie and the children.

But for him, past and reality merge.

 

symbol.

Even in ancient times, the butterfly was regarded as a symbol of rebirth and immortality. In Christianity it still is the symbol of the resurrection.

"Grace" takes up this symbolism and reflects it in Prof. Zisowskis life. 

 

Like the caterpillar, Prof. Zisowski leads a hidden life and adapts to his surroundings to not draw attention at any cost. The cocoon, in which the caterpillar transforms into a butterfly, reflects the secret space in which Prof. Zisowski resurrects his deceased family.

The butterfly is the final work of art he creates from Marie and the children.

The rebirth of his family.
