Winner of Best Film and Best Actor at the 2011 German Film Awards, Vincent Wants to Sea is a feel-good crowd-pleaser. Star Florian David Fitz also wrote the story of Vincent, a 27-year-old with Tourette's syndrome. Dispatched to a health facility after his mother's death, Vincent quickly bonds with rebellious fellow patient Marie (Karoline Herfurth). They make a break for freedom accompanied by Vincent's obsessive-compulsive roommate Alexander (Johannes Al mayer). The trio head for the Italian coast where Vincent intends to scatter his mother's ashes and their road trip becomes a touching, comical tale of confronting home truths and finding their inner strength. Part of Glasgow Film Festival 2012: Welcome to Germany.
