Hut in the Woods ★★☆☆☆

"an empathetic portrayal of the crippling and destabilising effects of mental illness"

Hans Weingartner, the acclaimed director of The Edukators, returns with his third feature Hut in the Woods, a whirlwind journey into one man’s spiralling decent into madness and his inventive attempts to find redemption.

Martin (Peter Schneider) was a gifted mathematician, living in Berlin with a promising career and a steady girlfriend. However, when he returns from a six month spell in a psychiatric unit he finds he’s lost it all, with his girlfriend having moved on and the job saved for him by his former employers rescinded due to concerns over his ability to cope under pressure.
