  • DEAD LEAVES is a dark, poetic meditation on suicide, selfmutilation

    and the romantic themes of melancholy, mortality,

    eternal love and loss.

    The story's doomed hero Joey (played by Israeli actor Haim

    Abramski) saves the body of his deceased lover, the beautiful

    Laura (introducing Canadian top model Elisabeth Gondek) and

    escapes on a self-destructive voyage through the industrial

    highway landscape of the Tri-State area. Joey spends five nights

    with the corpse and tries to preserve Laura's fading beauty in a

    strange ritual. At the same time, he is haunted by the memories

    of the happy and dark moments of their relationship ...


    DEAD LEAVES is Constantin Werner's feature film debut.
