Intriguing drama by German director Christian Petzold
A small holiday house by the baltic sea. The days are hot and it hasn’t rained in weeks. Four young people come together, friends old and new. As the parched forests around them begin to ignite, so do their emotions. Happiness, lust and love; but also jealousies, resentments and tensions. Meanwhile the forests burn. And before long, the flames are there.
Excellent and engaging drama by Christian Petzold, one of Germany’s most important directors, known for Barbara and Phoenix. Roter Himmel won the Silver Bear at the Berlinale.
