Join us at 8.00 pm for: ‘SUMPTUOUS FILM-NOIR MELODRAMA… A HAUNTING PORTRAIT OF IDENTITY, LOSS AND THE SEARCH FOR ANSWERS IN POST-WWII BERLIN.’ Variety ‘MASTERFUL.’ Guardian
A highly original and haunting tale of displacement and confused identities, featuring extraordinary performances by actors Nina Hoss and Ronald Zehrfeld. Traumatised by the loss of her family, popular cabaret singer Nelly returns from the camps to the chaos of post-war Berlin to track down the husband who betrayed her. Not recognising Nelly, who has had plastic surgery, he persuades her to ‘impersonate’ the wife he has assumed is dead in order to win an inheritance from her now deceased family. An unmissable and engrossing story that expertly echoes the upheaval and moral ambiguities of the time.
