LATIN LOVER

LATIN LOVER

On her Mediterranean holiday, Anna, a young woman in her late twenties, has a short but steamy affair with Carlos. She returns home to Munich where her husband, Frank, an up-and-coming architect is immersed, as always, in his work. Their marriage is headed for the proverbial rocks. Still, Anna tries as best she can to rekindle the love they once had for each other. Then Carlos shows up in town. She wants him to get out of her life but he refuses. Anna succumbs to his charms once again. By the time she decides to stop and save her marriage, Frank has already found out. Instead of forgiving her, he drives her back into Carlos' arms. Then Anna finds out she's pregnant and Frank is the father. She tries one last time to save the situation but Frank goes ballistic. She heads south to begin a new life with Carlos. Frank finally realizes what he has lost and - to hell with his career - goes after her, intent on winning her back. Now Anna can't bring herself to forgive him. And Carlos doesn't want to lose her. But Frank is determined and just won't give up. Anna has to make the most difficult choice of her life ...


Oskar Roehler started his career as a screenwriter for various cinema films and directed his first feature, GENTLEMAN, in 1995. His film NO PLACE TO GO (2000), a very personal and sensitively told portrait of his mother, was Roehler’s breakthrough and received the German Film Award in Gold. His other award-winning films include: ANGST (2003) which premiered in the competition at the Berlinale in 2003, AGNES AND HIS BROTHERS (2004) which screened at the Venice Film Festival, as well as his film adaptation of Michel Houellebecq’s novel ATOMISED (2006). JUD SÜSS - FILM OHNE GEWISSEN (2010) which also played in competition at the Berlinale was one of his most polarizing films. After SOURCES OF LIFE (2012) which premiered in Karlovy Vary in competition, OUTMASTERED is his latest film.
