Based on Edgar Allan Poe's short story of the same name, the movie tells the story of a hypnotist who hypnotizes his dying friend M. Valdemar by using mesmerism to find out how this condition affects the death of a patient.
I was born in Klosterneuburg, austria, half-french, half-austrian, and since I was 12 years old I'm obsessed with movie making in all its forms and varieties, starting with small no-budget and no-equipment productions, slowly growing to make more professional movies, but still with the same ambition and love to movies. Sounds pretty clishé and cheesy I think, but sometimes life is clishé and cheesy. I currently live in vienna, austria, studying editing at the Filmakademie Wien.
