(0/5)

Tells the story of Michael Berg, a German lawyer who as a teenager in the late 1950s had an affair with an older woman, Hanna, who then disappeared only to resurface years later as one of the defendants in a war crimes trial stemming from her actions as a concentration camp guard late in the war. He alone realizes that Hanna is illiterate and may be concealing that at the expense of her freedom.

Trivia-View All

- Hendrik Maaß, who plays Michael's court house assistant (uncredited role), had been vocationally trained as a paralegal in real life for some time.

- To avoid legal consequences, the crew delayed the filming of sexually explicit scenes until after actor David Kross' 18th birthday on July 4 2008.

- SPOILER: Before Hanna commits suicide by hanging in her prison cell, the books that Michael read to her (The Odyssey War and Peace etc.) are used as a platform before she hangs herself.
