Golden Globe nomination for Best Picture - Foreign Language

2018 Oscar® Selection, Germany

Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck's first German film since 2007's Oscar®-winning THE LIVES OF OTHERS is another exercise in Vergangenheitsbewältigung — "coming to terms with the past" — this time, a bildungsroman about Kurt (Tom Schilling), a talented young artist from Dresden who finds the GDR and its totalitarian state machinery stifling to his art and a mere substitution for the recently discarded fascist state he grew up in. Emigrating to Düsseldorf in the West, Kurt makes a new life for himself, but finds that events, and people, from his past will always have a grip on him. Closely based on the life and art of Gerhard Richter, NEVER LOOK AWAY is an epic of mid-century modernism spanning the worlds of art and politics, with characters doing their best to survive in rapidly changing times. With Sebastian Koch, Paula Beer and Saskia Rosendahl. DIR/SCR/PROD Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck; PROD Quirin Berg, Jan Mojto, Christiane Henckel von Donnersmarck, Max Wiedemann. Germany/Italy, 2018, 188 min. In German and Russian with English subtitles. NOT RATED
