This film is not a classic portrait but a documentary using fiction to bring Martin Suter’s novels to life while introducing us to the author behind the stories on a whole new level. “Fantasy is usually more true than reality itself,” says Suter. He strolls through his stories, cinematically and aesthetically impressively staged, exposing his protagonists and their secrets – and especially his own private cosmos: a world drenched in contradictions and marked by an addiction to stories. This film reveals everything about Martin Suter – everything but the truth.
