Dolores is a 90-minute feature film produced by Schwabenlandfilm and based on the graphic novel Dolorès. A seemingly hopeless love, one in a model building, realistic down to the smallest detail , an intrusion of magic into real life - and suddenly the ungainly Georg becomes lord over life and death. After the graphic novel “Dolorès” by François Schuiten, Benoît Peeters and Anne Baltus is currently being made in a movie with the same name 1).
The screenplay was written by Sebastian Feld. Michael Rösel is the director, image design by Willy Dettmeyer and the production design is done by Christian Strang. The movie is produced by Frieder Scheiffele (all graduates of the Film Academy Baden-Württemberg) 2).
