THE UNIVERSAL THEORY
DE/AU/CH 2023, 118 min, OV with English subtitles
Director: Timm Kröger
In 1962, at a physics conference in the Swiss Alps, young Johannes defends a theory concerning the existence of parallel worlds. But nobody believes it, not even his doctoral advisor. But mystery keeps piling up: a curious cloud formation in the sky, the ghostly presence of Karin, a young pianist who obsesses him and seems to know everything about him… And what about the victims of strange accidents in the mountains? Reality seems very fragile in this place.
A film that has what it takes to become a modern classic. Style, suspense and a narrative that walks its own abyss: Timm Kröger has everything that makes great film art in the best Hitchcock tradition. With a fantastic ensemble cast and a phenomenal soundtrack, THE UNIVERSAL THEORY is an ingenious film noir about the contingency of our world, in which many things are possible and hardly anything is necessary.
