IN TIMES OF FADING LIGHT

BY MATTI GESCHONNECK

IN TIMES OF FADING LIGHT


In 1989, on the eve of the fall of the Wall, Germany is still divided into two states. In East Berlin, we celebrate the 90th anniversary of Wilhelm, a convinced Stalinist communist. His son Kurt, an intellectual spent in Russian prisons, is present but his grandson Sascha shines by his absence: he fled to West Germany.

With desperate humor, the film portrays a family that is disintegrating just like the country. Successful adaptation of Eugen Ruge’s bestseller, with the great Bruno Ganz in the role of patriarch.
