Starring: Tom Schilling, Sebastian Koch and Paula Beer

Inspired by real events and spanning three eras of German history, Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck’s third film (following The Lives of Others and The Tourist) is a sweeping epic about love, politics, and painting. Kurt is a young art student in Düsseldorf who falls in love with a fellow student, Ellie. Ellie’s father, Professor Seeband, a well-known doctor, is dismayed at his daughter’s choice in partner and vows to destroy the relationship. What neither Ellie nor Kurt realise is that their lives are already connected through a terrible crime Seeband committed decades ago.

This vastly ambitious drama was nominated in the Best Foreign Language Film category at 2019’s Academy Awards.
