About the Film

At the turn of the 20th century, the young orphan Andreas is sent to live with his ruthless uncle on a farm in a remote valley; a valley that Andreas will only leave once in his life. Treated not as family but as a worker, Andreas endures a childhood without affection, full of brutality and hard labor. At the age of 18, he has grown into a strong man and finds work as a woodsman. He works on the construction of an invention: the mountain ropeway. This invention marks the beginning of alpine tourism but is paid for with the many deaths of mountain workers. Andreas is no stranger to hard labor, and now that he is earning his own money, he buys himself a small plot of land with a cabin high up in the valley. He soon finds something he has never experienced before: love.

Key cast: Stefan Gorsk, August Zirner, Julia Franz Richter, Thomas Schubert, Andreas Lust, Robert Stadlober, Marianne Saegebrecht

Based on the world bestseller by Robert Seethaler, published in more than 40 languages.

“A deeply moving book”
(Sunday Times – about the novel)

“A WHOLE LIFE is one of those stripped-down everyman stories that is transparently, self-consciously about Much More: The encroachment of modernity, the universal nature of love and heartbreak, the quickness of our passage through life”
(The New York Times – about the novel)
