“Paradise Lost“ depicts constricting spirals of life which end in suicide: Martin, opposed to expectation, survives. His way out of the hopelessness is through the possibility of therapeutic help. Philipp, after agonising years cannot beat schizophrenia. The film, traces through dialogue with his parents, the approaching suicide of their own child. A moving review of a young person.
