Description: First-time German writer-director Sven Taddicken authors and helms the unconventional romance Emmas Gluck (AKA Emmas Bliss, 2006). The film opens on Max (Jordis Triebel), an ungifted car salesman who learns from his physician that he's dying of pancreatic cancer and only has a short time to live. On impulse, Max lifts a large sum of cash from his boss's holdings, and takes off for Mexican beaches. An auto accident, however, waylays him, and he has a chance encounter with Emma, a slightly hostile and thoroughly lonely pig breeder who opts to slaughter her hogs by holding them gently until all of the blood drains out. Emma instantly grows smitten with Max (and her excitement doubles when she learns of the money he pilfered; Max, in return, falls in love with Emma, and the romance drives the encroaching cancer completely out of his mind.~ Nathan Southern, All Movie Guide
