Dirk Ohm – The Disappearing Illusionist
In mid–winter the illusionist Dirk Ohm (August Diehl) arrives in the small town of Grong, a place ridden by the disappearance of a young local woman – Maria. Dirk soon finds himself searching for Maria side by side with the villagers of Grong; and slowly he falls in love with the missing woman. DIRK OHM – the illusionist is told in a magical and poetic landscape. It challenges our perception of what’s real and what’s not, who we are when we are present and who are we when we are gone.
The film is inspired by the real-life disappearance of German illusionist Dirk Ohm in Grong, North Trøndelag, in 2003.
