Nothing could be stranger for a 21-year-old girl than to be married to a 51-year-old man, thought Lea. Then maybe, she thought too fast.
The Hyderabad Film Club, in collaboration with the Association For German Culture, Hyderabad, presents the screening of the German movie, Lea. Lea is a film about a powerful romance, which proves that true love can emerge from the most unlikely of places. Lea (Lenka Vlasakova) is a mute 21-year-old who is still affected by a major childhood trauma, while Herbert (Christian Redl) is a sad 51-year-old who continues to mourn the death of his wife.
Lea strikingly resembles Herbert's wife, which sparks a connection that eventually results in marriage. At first the couple is awkward and uncomfortable, but gradually they begin to lean on one another, until their walls of defense begin to crumble "normal" life. However, their newfound happiness is abruptly ended by a catastrophe just as they finally come together.
