Latvia in 1919 lived through the nasty endings of WWI, the Russian Revolution and civil war. Director Schlöndorff gets to these horrors by way of a love affair gone sour. It’s a devastating film, from the period when Schlöndorff was at his best, helped tremendously by his then-wife Margaretta von Trotta (she directed last year’s Hannah Arendt) in a leading role.
DIRECTOR: Volker Schlöndorff
