AfireDirected by Christian Petzold
While vacationing by the Baltic Sea, writer Leon and photographer Felix are surprised by the presence of Nadja, a mysterious young woman staying as a guest at Felix’s family’s holiday home. Nadja distracts Leon from finishing his latest novel and with brutal honesty, forces him to confront his caustic temperament and self-absorption. As Nadja and Leon grow closer, an encroaching forest fire threatens the group and tensions escalate when a handsome lifeguard and Leon’s tight-lipped book editor also arrive. Winner, Silver Bear Grand Jury Prize at this year’s Berlin International Film Festival.
