"Legend of Rita"
Directed by Volker Schlondorff
Rita, the member of a
terrorist organization in the '70s, comes to live in East Germany in the
'80s, aided by the secret police who give her a new identity in exchange
for information. A fascinating story of a radical caught up in the
historic changes of her homeland. "It's not propaganda for either side,
but the story of how the division and reunification of Germany swept
individual lives away indifferently in its tide" (Roger Ebert, Chicago
Sun-Times). Bibiana Beglau and Nadja Uhl shared Best Actress honors at the
Berlin International Film Festival. German with English subtitles.
