Coming to DVD and Digital Download on 23rd October 2017 is the powerfully moving, true-life World War II thriller Alone In Berlin, which stars two-time Academy® Award-winner Emma Thompson, Brendan Gleeson and Daniel Brühl. To celebrate the release, we have three copies to give away on DVD.
Otto (Gleeson) and Anna Quangel (Thompson) are a working-class couple living in a derelict apartment block trying to lay low under Nazi rule. But when their only child is killed fighting at the front, their loss drives them to an extraordinary act of resistance. They start to drop anonymous postcards all over the city attacking Hitler and his regime. If caught, it means certain execution.
Soon their campaign comes to the attention of the Gestapo inspector Escherich (Brühl) and a murderous game of cat-and-mouse begins. But the game serves only to strengthen Otto and Anna’s sense of purpose and a renewed love for each other. Slowly their uneventful lives and marriage are transformed as they unite in their quiet but profound rebellion.
Based on a true story, the powerful and redemptive novel was described by Primo Levi as “the greatest book ever written about German resistance to the Nazis” – this cinematic depiction equally embodies the emotion and honesty of these true historic events.
