From Oscar winning director Caroline Link (Best Foreign Language Film for Nowhere in Africa) comes an adaptation of British author Judith Kerr’s classic novel based on her childhood memories. The story of a Jewish family’s escape from 1933 Berlin to Switzerland is told from the perspective of the author’s alter ego, ten year-old Anna Kemper (Riva Krymalowski in her feature film debut). Anna is too busy with schoolwork and friends to notice Hitler’s face glaring from posters plastered all over 1933 Berlin. But when her father (Oliver Masucci) — based on the prominent theater critic Alfred Kerr — suddenly vanishes, the family is secretly hurried out of Germany. Anna begins to understand life will never be the same as she and her family become refugees. In German with subtitles. (119 mins)
“Caroline Link brings handsome period production values and a lyrical, restrained sensibility to a narrative that might not qualify as riveting, but exerts its own unmistakable emotional pull.” – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
