38 Vienna After The Fall
Austria, Germany | 103 mins | German, w/Eng. subtitles
It is the eve of Austria's annexation by Nazi Germany. The center of European culture is melting into a maelstrom of opportunism, violence, and despair. Carola, a young stage actress, and Martin, a journalist, fall in love. He is Jewish, she is not. As the apolitical lovers are separated and reunited by political events, they resist, demonstrate unshakable loyalty, and achieve a deep transcendent love. An exciting, richly photographed film that has received considerable and deserved acclaim. Best Foreign Film nominee, 1986 Academy Awards.
