Alone in Berlin (2016)

The film is based on the Hans Fallada’s novel “Every man dies alone”, originally published in 1947.

Director Vincent Pérez decided to turn the book into a film. It’s the story of two ordinary people, Otto and Anna Quangel, who do something extraordinary. After the loss of their son to the war, they decide to fight the Nazis writing 286 postcards to urge other people to stand fiercely against Hitler.

I’ve noticed that so many directors wish to have Emma in the cast as leading actress, especially in dramatic roles. In fact Pérez says Emma was the only person he considered for that role and as we can see, she’s spot on as usual.
