REVIEW FOR VIER MINUTEN - GERMAN FILM BY CHRIS KRAUS
Osmania University Centre for International Programmes (OUCIP) is screening a German film Vier Minuten (Four Minutes), on 23rd March, at the OUCIP auditorium, near the Institute of Public Enterprise.
Directed by Chris Kraus, the film features Monica Bleibtreu, Hannah Herzsprung, Richy Muller, Jasmin Tabatabai, Stefan Kurt, and Vadim Glowna.
60 years ago, Traude Kruger (Monica Bleibtreu) began teaching music at a women's prison. Now she is on her search for possible students, and she meets Jenny (Hannah Herzsprung) - a violent young inmate convicted of murder, and also a brilliant pianist. When Kruger convinces prison authorities to let her train Jenny for a public competition at the Berlin Opera House, the past resurfaces for both women, and a lesson in humanity is learnt that they will each never forget.
The film won the Audience Award and the Grand Prize for the Best Film at the Biberach Film Festival 2006, and the Golden Goblet for the Best Film at the Shanghai International Film Festival 2006.
