Max Hegewald's new drama is devoted to a difficult topic: suicide among teenagers.
Based on a true story, the film accompanies three girls - played by Carolyn Genzkow, Josefine Israel and Lisa Hrdina - who met each other in an online chat. They decide to meet in a secluded forest to carry out their plans to end their lives. The film concentrates on the moments just before the act when each of them is confronted with their decision. Hegewald ties in the backstory of his figures by integrating finely honed sequences from their lives prior to their first meeting in the woods.
"EAT SNOW is a bold film, not just because it tackles a sensitive subject, but also for the way the director handles it." (wirsindmovies.com)
