Eine Frau in Berlin (A Woman in Berlin) - Now on DVD!
Those familiar with the history of WWII and its aftermath in Germany and, specifically, Berlin, will appreciate "Eine Frau in Berlin", based on the best-selling diaries of an anonymous German woman who survived the Soviet invasion of Berlin at the end of World War II. This gripping drama tells the story of a photojournalist's (Nina Hoss) forbidden relationship with a Soviet officer (Yevgeni Sidikhin). After being sexually assaulted by members of the invading Red Army, she turns to the officer for support, but soon finds herself falling for him. Peripheral characters also fill out this bleak and bitter portrait of Berlin and what the war brought upon the Germans.
