This dramatic film brings to the screen the bestselling classic novel by Judith Kerr with stunning visuals of cinematic brilliance from an earlier era. Set in 1993, the film follows 9-year-old Anna, who is initially oblivious to Hitler’s rise to power, until her own father goes missing. Hastily fleeing Germany, Anna, and her family move to Switzerland, then Paris, then London. From then on, Anna encounters life in exile, not speaking the language, not knowing customs and manners, missing her friends and loved ones. Academy Award-winning director Caroline Link offers this moving perspective on the experience of German Jews who fled their country before the war
