A HEAVY HEART @ TIFF (Contemporary World Cinema)

A HEAVY HEART by Thomas Stuber – TIFF Contemporary World Cinema

(2015, Germany, 109 min, world premiere)

A moving fictional portrait of fizzled-out Eastern German boxing champion, Herbert, who hasn’t won a match both in the ring or in life since the fall of the Berlin Wall. Now a hard-up bouncer and debt collector, he tries to revive the past by coaching his young boxing protégé, Eddy. As more and more physical deficiencies become apparent and a final fatal diagnosis, Herbert has little time left to come to terms with who he’s become and to rekindle his relationship with the daughter whom he abandoned.
