Those Loved By God

Austria, 1992 (MIFF 1993, Documentary)

Director: Johannes Hammel

Taken individually, Albert and Kathi seem tragic, losers, living hopelessly mundane lives on the fringe of society. They are an unlikely pair, Albert the ex-hobo and would-be-entertainer, and Kathi, the adult child, judged men­tally incompetent and sent to the 'crazy house' by her mother. But together, and through each other, they have found a rare sense of dignity and courage.
