DER LETZTE WEYNFELDT is Grimme award winner Alain Gsponer’s second film adaptation of a Martin Suter bestseller. Following the theatrical success of LILA, LILA he now takes on Suter’s sixth novel, »Der letzte Weynfeldt« (The Last Weynfeldt), in a production for ZDF and Swiss network SRF. The film tells the story of an affluent, upper crust art expert in Zurich whose well-ordered bachelor’s life is upset by a femme fatale. A man in his mid-50s, Adrian Weynfeldt drops into a bar one day looking for an olive for his martini. This is where he makes the acquaintance of beautiful Lorena. She spends the night with him. On the next morning, he finds her on his balcony on the wrong side of the balustrade. Weynfeldt keeps her from going through with her suicide attempt. The outcome: from that day on, she places all responsibility for her life on him – and gives him a proper fleecing. The great Marie Bäumer’s Lorena is part femme fatale, part woman on the verge of a nervous breakdown.
