Unsere Mütter, unsere Väter - part 1 (2013)

Directed by Philipp Kadelback

Certificate 15 (UK)

Running time 89 minutes approx.

Set in Berlin and at the Eastern Front, the three-part TV production follows five childhood friends - now in their early twenties - through the war years 1941-1945. Each episode represents a 90-minute movie in its own right, titled Another Time, Another War, Another Country respectively. In the first episode (Another Time) Wilhelm, already an officer in the Wehrmacht, and his intellectual brother Friedhelm, together with Charlotte, a typical youngster raised during the Nazi era, set off on Operation Barbarossa, the invasion of the Soviet Union. Meanwhile aspiring starlet Greta does everything to acquire an exit visa for her Jewish boyfriend Viktor. The new conditions they find themselves under are beginning to have a profound impact on each of the friends' personal development, integrity and Weltanschauung.

With Tom Schilling (Friedhelm), Volker Bruch (Wilhelm), Katharina Schüttler (Greta), Miriam Stein (Charlotte) and Ludwig Trepte (Viktor)
