Cast: Emma Thompson, Brendan Gleeson, Daniel Brühl

Emma Thompson and Brendan Gleeson star in this moving adaptation of Hans Fallada’s bestselling 1947 novel. Thompson and Gleeson are wartime Berliners the Quangels, who on suffering a tragedy become unlikely agitators, denouncing Hitler in a series of subversive postcards strewn across the city. Hotly pursued by Gestapo detective Escherich (Daniel Brühl), their story becomes a profound and terrifying thriller. One of the first German-authored anti-Nazi novels after the war, Fallada’s chilling masterpiece showed how ordinary citizens subsumed the intimate terror, violence and treachery of the Third Reich into their everyday consciousness; ideas well served by Perez’s handsome and suspenseful adaptation.
