A Woman in Berlin

Miami Beach Cinematheque. From Sept 12th through 14th, 2009.

The film A Woman in Berlin (Anonyma-Ein Frau in Berlin), directed by Max Färberböck and starring Nina Hoss, Yevgeni Sidikhin, Irm Hermann and Rüdiger Volger, will be screened at the Miami Beach Cinematheque on September 12th, 13th and 14th at 8:30 p.m.

At the author’s request, the book that this film is based on was published anonymously to protect her identity (and who was identified as Marta Hillers after her death). Set in 1945 during the Red Army invasion of Berlin, women are victims of rape and devastation. One of them is Anonyma (played by the German actress Nina Hoss), who had been a journalist and photographer. In her desperation, she decides to look for an officer who can protect her. She meets a Russian officer Andrej (Evgeny Sidikhin) – an encounter which develops into a complex symbiotic relationship that forces them to remain enemies until the bitter end.
