The LAST ROUND (56th Hof International Film Festival) heralds the director Elizaveta Snagovskaia with her tour for the release of the film in selected cinemas from Tuesday, 28 March 2023 / current info on Instagram. The documentary is about a socially widespread but extremely underestimated topic: alcoholism.
In Germany and Russia, people drink the same amount of pure alcohol: ten liters per capita per year. Two Germans and two Russians are "functioning" young alcoholics. All four are trying to stop drinking. Drinking, however, is so woven into our everyday lives that we no longer even notice it: As long as we function, we drink. And as long as we drink, we function. How can we break out of this vicious circle?
LAST ROUND shows that health problems know no boundaries. The film "...does not condemn or judge, but rather observes and suggests that there can only be individual answers and solutions for individual problems and that there are no templates for the "right" way to deal with alcohol or other addictive substances. Illuminating and well worth seeing." / Film plus Kritik
