Oscar nominee: Best Foreign Language Film, Best Cinematography

Golden Globe nominee: Best Foreign Language Film


A sweeping romantic historical drama, Germany's Official submission to the Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film, NEVER LOOK AWAY follows thirty years in the life of a great artist - loosely based on Gerhard Richter (Tom Schilling, WOMAN IN GOLD). 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, FRANTZ, TRANSIT) whose father is an ex-Nazi murderer in hiding (Sebastian Koch, THE LIVES OF OTHERS), to escaping to the West at the time of the Berlin Wall, and ultimately being part of the exciting new movement in contemporary art.
