One last chance to see one of the best films of the year, and winner of the Audience Award at this year’s Chichester Film Festival.
A sweeping romantic historical drama, we follow thirty years in the life of a great artist - loosely based on Gerhard Richter, one of the 20th century's most admired visual artists - played by Tom Schilling.
The film goes from a childhood witnessing Nazi Germany, to post-war East Berlin, where he falls in love with a young woman (Paula Beer) whose father (Sebastian Koch) is an ex-Nazi in hiding, to escaping to the West at the time of the Berlin Wall, and ultimately being part of the exciting new movement in contemporary art.
The title of ‘Never Look Away’ is deliciously ironic - this is one of the most mesmerizing, compulsively watchable films of the year. (Subtitles)
Winner of the Audience Award for Best Film at the 2019 Chichester Film Festival.
