Variety:  “…a surprisingly effective portrait of damaged but lovable lost souls on the road…ably directed by Ralf Huettner…kudos go in large part to thesp Florian David Fitz ("Men in the City"), who not only stars but also penned the solid screenplay. After a modest debut, pic has become Germany's second-biggest local title of the year through strong word of mouth.” - Boyd Van Hoeij

The Hollywood Reporter.:  "Ralf Huettner's sleeper hit Vincent Wants to Sea was the surprise best picture winner at the 61st German Film Awards, Germany's version of the Oscars. Vincent, featuring a man with Tourette's Syndrome and an anorexic, beat out features from more seasoned directors including Tom Tykwer to take the country's top film honor."  - Scott Roxborough

VINCENT WANTS TO SEA has secured 20 screening opening dates across the United States this summer. Find a detailed schedule at the end of this release.  Screeners and online access to film available via Gotham PR New York.



Embattled with the symptoms of Tourette’s Syndrome, Vincent Gellner (Florian David Fitz) has just endured the loss his mother.  His father (Heino Ferch), an ambitious politician running for office, burdened with the task of caring for Vincent, sends him off to a rehabilitation clinic where he will learn how to manage his twitches, tics, and ill-timed, but unpremeditated verbal outbursts.  

An unenthusiastic Vincent is given an election ballot to sign and mail, thus securing his father another vote, as a departing gift he is dropped off at the clinic.  Once indoctrinated into the program,  Vincent finds solace in Marie (Karoline Herfurth), a feisty anorexic whose partiality for spontaneous adventure  happens to coincide with Vincent’s objective of getting to the Mediterranean Sea in Northern Italy to spread his mother’s ashes and fulfill her last wish: to see the water one last time.   Also coerced along for the ride happens Vincent’s roommate, Alexander (Johannes Allmayer), an obsessive-compulsive whose only contentment comes in the form of expensive cars, dapper dress, and Johann Sebastian Bach.  
What follows is a hilarious road movie with the trio cruising down the autobahn without the slightest concern for the inconveniences they cause the people around them along the way.  While Vincent’s father and Dr. Rose (Katherine Muller-Elmau) bumble along in pursuit of the escaped patients, Vincent, Marie, and Alexander enjoy a reprieve from the clinic and experience a surrealistic journey that liberates them from their afflictions.  The film ends happily for just about everyone, and the newfound friends discover that life is too precious to let their afflictions interfere with their true individuality.    

Director Ralf Huettner's extensive experience with comedic films and TV production is apparent here, and equally impressive is the double role carried by Florian David Fitz as both lead actor and script writer.  Fitz  for Best Lead Actor and Best Screenplay German Lola Awards. Heino Ferch (Vision, Downfall) and Katherina Muller-Elmau for Best Supporting Actor and Actress.  

Vincent Wants to Sea is proudly distributed by Corinth Releasing & Corinth Films, Inc.  Press book available.
