An uplifting Swiss comedy directed by Rolf Lyssy with jazz music by the siblings Baldenweg (Great Garbo).
At the age of 89, Gertrud Foster is enviably energetic and independent with only one thing in mind when she smiles at the elegant Englishman, who she apparently found on a dating platform, even though she has no memory of doing so: to determine the final stages of her life herself before winding up in a dementia ward.
Rolf Lyssy was honoured with the Career Achievement Award at the 16th Zürich Film Festival 2020.
The Embassy of Switzerland had the pleasure to screen another Rolf Lyssy comedy during the Swiss Film Weeks 2002, the famous, Schweizermacher (The Swiss Maker).
2017 – 99‘ – fiction
