Set to open this year's edition of the Venice Film Festival's International Film Critic's Week is debut writer/director Carlo S. Hintermann's drama The Book of Vision.

Executive produced by Terrence Malick, The Book of Vision stars Lotte Verbeek as a young doctor who leaves for a remote university to study the history of medicine. There she comes across the philosophy of Dr. Johan Anmuth (Charles Dance) and his enigmatic Book of Vision, an unconventional text book that confounds rationality. Sverrir Gudnason, Isolda Dychauk and Filippo Nigro also feature in the international cast.

The official synopsis reads:

Eva, a promising young doctor, leaves her brilliant career to study History of Medicine in a remote university. Now is the time for her to call everything into question: her nature, her body, her illness, and her sealed fate. Johan Anmuth is an 18th-century Prussian physician in perpetual conflict between the rise of rationalism and ancient forms of animism. The Book of Vision is a manuscript that sweeps these two existences up, blending them into a never-ending vortex. Far from a proper scientific text, the book contains the hopes, fears, and dreams of more than 1800 patients. Dr. Anmuth truly knew how to listen to his patients, whose spirits still wander through the pages, life and death, merging in a continuous flow. The story of Anmuth and his patients inspire Eva to live her life to the fullest. Nothing expires in its time. Only what you desire is real, not merely what happens.
