Writer/director Christian Petzold’s adaptation of a decades-old WW2 novel takes a daring and effective approach, setting the story in contemporary Marseille and thus reminding us that history can repeat itself. Georg, who is living in Paris as the Germans approach, flees south in fear and desperation. He impersonates a deceased author in a bid to emigrate, but is torn when he meets the dead man’s wife as she desperately searches for him.
Presented in co-operation with the Goethe-Institut Irland
One of Petzold's very best films, which will challenge and delight his many admirers.Gráinne Humphreys, Festival Director
