Based on the correspondence of two of the most important poets of the German language of the 20th century, The Dreamed Ones captures the powerful romance between Ingeborg Bachmann and Paul Celan, the Austrian and the Jew from Czernowitz through their nearly 20-year correspondence (1948– 1967). Their dramatic postal exchange creates the textual basis of the lm.
Two young actors meet in a recording studio in Vienna’s Funkhaus to read the letters.
The tumultuous emotions of proximity and distance, fascination and fear captivate them. However, they also enjoy each other‘s company, arguing, smoking, discussing their tattoos, and favourite music.
