UNWIEDERBRINGLICH ENTFLIEHT DIE ZEIT - EINE CHRONIK is a feature-length documentary about letting go. Shot in a style that is reflective as well as humorous, Carmen Treichl follows her grandparents as their lives come to a close. In the constant conflict between grandchild and filmmaker, she is forced to leave her comfort zone. In her so doing, the camera offers a path with which she and all those concerned, along with the viewer, can deal with death. The familiar routines crumble slowly and are replaced by an acceptance that time, irreplaceable and beyond all value, is indeed escaping. A portrait of the present.
