The comically tragic young poet Heinrich wishes to make a dramatic statement on the nature of existence, yet is unable to convince his skeptical cousin Marie to join him in a suicide pact. In the most unlikely of scenarios, Amour Fou manifests as a “romantic comedy” based loosely on the life of the poet Henrich von Kleist in 1811.
