Never Look Away
Inspired by real events and spanning three eras of German history, the film tells the story of a young art student, Kurt (Tom Schilling) who falls in love with fellow student, Ellie (Paula Beer).
Ellie’s father, Professor Seeband (Sebastian Koch), a famous doctor, is dismayed at his daughter’s choice of boyfriend, and vows to destroy the relationship.
What neither of them knows is that their lives are already connected through a terrible crime Seeband committed decades ago.
"This exceptional drama is an Oscar nominee for Best Foreign Language Film this year, and rightly so. I urge you to see Never Look Away. It is a rich and rewarding experience, and the three hours fly by."
"It is stately and composed, clear-eyed and engrossing."
"The German Oscar nominee for best foreign-language film is a triumphant return form to filmmaker Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, a treatise on love and war and the limitless reach of art that, even when it trips up, is never less than exhilarating."
Directed by Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck
