Nebelgrind is a film drama by the Swiss director Barbara Kulcsar from 2012. The television production is based on a joint script by the authors Josy Meier and Eveline Stähelin and is about a farming family in Willisau who is confronted with the Alzheimer's disease of their widowed father or grandfather Karli .

Martin Rapold and Peter Freiburghaus , who appeared in front of the camera for a film production for the first time in more than 20 years, took on the leading roles . The ZodiacPictures Ltd. and a film co-produced by Swiss television was first broadcast on SF Zwei on April 15, 2012 . The Swiss television nominated Nebelgrind as his contribution to the competitions of the TV film festival Baden-Baden and the election for the 3sat audience award 2012.


Farmer Jürg can't quite believe it: his wife Fränzi bursts the collar and she leaves him with the children and forgetful father Karli for two weeks. Jürg has no choice but to take the reins in hand. He quickly realizes that Fränzi was right and that his elderly father is not just getting older, but is suffering from Alzheimer's. Jürg is facing the challenge of his life and he comes up with a few ideas to get his father to move along.


The program magazine TV Spielfilm described the drama in its TV review as an “impressive study of a widespread disease” and wrote: “The melancholy, very touching film shows with a precise look and quiet humor what it means when a loved one slowly disappears into the fog. “The Frankfurter Rundschau rated Nebelgrind as“ worth seeing ”and found the production to be“ a sensitively staged and touching family drama by Swiss director Barbara Kulcsar, which shows in front of an impressive natural backdrop how Alzheimer's disease messes up the life of an entire family and, at the same time, the creeping one Loss of a loved one means. ”The film thus ranks in thematically similar films such as Iris (2001) and At her side (2006).
