When Fabian tells her that he has learned to control his feelings, Doro remains skeptical, for their relationship has already failed once due to his jealousy. Nevertheless, she agrees to give it one more try. Eventually, she falls in love with him again, and maybe they can really start over in Lisbon, where Doro has found a new job as an architect? Yet soon, Fabian displays the old obsessive habits when he begins to spy after Doro and to follow her every move… Unflinchingly, Jonas Rothlaender's melancholic drama "Fado" shows how distrust poisons love, and tender affection turns into intimidating aggression. In addition to the great lead performances by Luise Heyer and Golo Euler, the film fascinates with an intriguing blend of realism and sudden visualizations of Fabian's wild and paranoid imagination. An impressive debut.
