Two Lives / Berlin & Beyond 2014 Opening Night Film
PLENTY OF TICKETS still available at the Castro Theatre's box office on Wednesday, January 15th, beginning at 3:00pm. CASH ONLY please.
Germany's official entry to the 2014 Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film consideration (Now in the Short List). Starring acclaimed German actors Juliane Köhler (Nowhere in Africa) and Ken Duken (Inglorious Bastards), and a rare performance by legendary Norwegian actress Liv Ullmann. Europe 1990, the Berlin wall has just crumbled. Katrine, raised in East Germany, but now living in Norway for the last 20 years, is a "war child"; the result of a love relationship between a Norwegian woman and a German occupation soldier during World War II. She enjoys a happy family life with her mother, her husband, daughter and granddaughter. But when a lawyer asks her and her mother to be a witness in a trial against the Norwegian state on behalf of the war children, she resists. Gradually, a web of concealment and secrets is unveiled until Katrine is finally stripped of everything and her loved ones are forced to take a stand. What carries more weight: the life they have lived together, or the lie it is based on?
