Fabian follows his ex to Lisbon. There they revive the intimate but painful time until the tense mood of mistrust and blame culminates in a pyschotic nightmare. The DFFB production FADO and first feature by Jonas Rothlaender, debuted at the film festivals Achtung Berlin, Max-Ophüls-Preis and IFF Rotterdam. Young Berlin doctor Fabian tries to win back his architect girlfriend Doro in Lisbon but is thwarted by his unrelenting jealousy. "Jonas Rothlaender's FADO is an atmospheric study that sees sexual jealousy turn into a claustrophobic melodrama." (Perlentaucher) After a first night back together, Fabian’s old fears and anxieties start to overwhelm him. Fabian tries but fails to suppress his jealousy over Doro’s close friendship with her charismatic colleague, Francisco.
