The Year I Lost My Mind

Tom is a creepy guy, preoccupied with breaking and entering into private property, and skulking around wooded gay cruising areas of Berlin. Even his own mother asks him why he has to scare everyone. When he directs his ominous energy at Lars, a professor of gay history, Tom is captured by his own dark obsessions. How close can he get to Lars without being caught? How close can he get before losing his own mind?

Tor Iben, director of The Passenger (2012) and Where Are You Going, Habibi? (2015), is a master of sexual tension on screen—and in this respect The Year I Lost My Mind may be his magnum opus. With spare dialogue and spine-chilling action, this psycho thriller is sure to leave audiences both bewildered and aroused.

This film is unrated and shown in German with English subtitles.
