Saturday 30 November 2019 at 1.30pm

Tom Schilling, Sebastian Koch, Paula Beer

From the director of The Lives of Others, this sweeping drama follows a young German through the decades – from a childhood witnessing the Nazi regime, to troubled romance in post-war East Berlin, then escape to the West where he becomes an acclaimed painter. Loosely based on the life of Gerhard Richter, Never Look Away combines affecting storytelling with an incisive understanding of how artists and society develop together, and was nominated for the Foreign Language and Cinematography Academy Awards.

Franz Rogowski, Paula Beer, Godehard Giese

A young Jewish technician impersonates a dead author to flee from Nazi-occupied Paris. While stuck in Marseilles, he encounters – and falls in love with – the dead author’s young wife. Director Christian Petzold takes a Casablanca-style story and imbues it with present-day relevance by modernising aspects of the setting, helped by superb performances from Rogowski and Beer. “An overwhelmingly sad meditation on the repeated moral failures that make up the history of refugees in Europe” (Sight and Sound).

German with subtitles.
