Moon in Taurus

Steff Gruber’s first feature film is the story of a young Swiss who, after absence of five years, returns to a small town in the US state Georgia where a love affair had come to an abrupt and, for him, unhappy end.
He tries to discover the reasons for the break-up of his relationship. His ex-girlfriend has since married and is in the throes of divorce. Parallel to this, he re-lives his own love relationship to this woman. Following a period of analytical observation, he becomes more and more involved with his own problems.

Moon in Taurus is a film without actors, for all the participants act themselves.
Based on selection from 15 hours of documentary materials, the film links fiction and documentation in an original way.
