Germany, Pale Mother

Helma Sanders-Brahms' Germany, Pale Mother is an emotionally powerful love story that has become a modern classic. Ground-breaking in its realism, the film is set during World War II and follows newlywed Lene, whose young husband, a soldier, is sent to the front lines. Lene discovers that she is pregnant and is to take her child on a journey across the war ravaged countryside.

Raw and visceral, Germany, Pale Mother stands as a landmark - a film that shows us war from a woman's perspective, creating a character in Lene who is by turns brave and foolhardy, resourceful and resilient, facing a bleak future with fierce determination. Eva Mattes (Effi Briest, The Bitter Tears Of Perta Von Kanf) delivers a performance of searing intensity, indelible and unforgettable.
