This subtle romantic drama is set during the 1943 allied bombing of Berlin and the Jewish purges of the capital by the Gestapo. During these dark times, two women began a dangerous sexual affair. One is a married mother of four, enjoying all the privliges of Nazi party affiliation. The other is a Jewess and a member of the underground. Amazingly enough, this is based on a true story. The film, winner of a 1999 Golden Globe and Germany's official submission for Oscar consideration, manages to tell its story with decorum, beauty and deep emotional understanding. 126 minutes
