'A Heavy Heart' Marks Impressive Debut from New German Talent

The debut feature is director Thomas Stuber's follow-up to his Oscar-winning short.

After winning a German film award, and a student Oscar, for his short film Of Dogs and Horses in 2012, Thomas Stuber chose an unusual project for his feature-film follow up: a boxing movie. In reverse.

“You're classic American boxing film is all about the young guy from nowhere who works hard, fights his way up and triumphs, winning fame and fortune,” says Stuber. “My film flips that narrative. It's about the decline of a once great boxer.”
