MARTHA LIEBERMANN: A STOLEN LIFE
(MARTHA LIEBERMANN: EIN GESTOHLENES LEBEN), Director: Stefan Bühling Germany, 2022, with Thekla Carola Weid, Lana Cooper
Celebrated Berlin artist Max Liebermann died in 1935, on the cusp of Germany’s savagely escalating persecution of its Jewish population. His death left his widow Martha heir to his exceedingly valuable body of work and vast art collection, and increasingly made her the vulnerable target of acquisitive Nazi greed. As tense and intrigue-filled as a thriller, this meticulously crafted drama of a strong-willed widow’s struggle against the coming threat presents a world of shadowy peril where every friend and associate must be viewed as a potential betrayer. Urged to flee the country with a resistance group, yet hesitant, she receives a suspect offer from a shady art expert and even comes to doubt the motives of her loyal housekeeper Luise. With deportation to a camp looming, Martha makes a decision of ultimate resistance. In German with English subtitles.
