Return Wiederkehr

It's hard to see what interest this slight film could have for anyone other than those who made it. Talky, static and undramatic, story concerns an elderly woman who returns to Berlin after a 30 years' absence and chances to meet an old flame. Story jumps back and forth between then and now, with much palaver about East-West politics and the meaning of life.

Cast:
Marianne Albert ... Dagmar von Tomas Hans Prischke ... Christoph Engel Marianne (young) ... Therese Haemer Hans (young) ... Stephan Wolf-Schoenburg
