The Berlin Affair

Because You d The Berlin Affair
Thriller Drama Rated: 18+ (R)19851h 35mOn: Paramount+ Epix Tags: Female Director Country: Germany 

In 1938 Berlin, Gudrun Landgrebe, wife of Nazi functionary Kevin McNally, begins taking art lessons. She makes the acquaintance of another student, Japanese ambassador's daughter Mio Takaki. Soon afterwards, the two women begin a passionate lesbian affair. This leads to a chain reaction of disaster and tragedy, culminating with the inevitable intervention of the Gestapo. Despite the film's galloping sexual passions, The Berlin Affair is an exercise in aloofness, keeping the characters at arm's length-surprising, considering that the director was Liliana Cavani, auteur of the erotic classic The Night Porter (1974). The film was based on The Buddhist Cross, a novel by Junichiro Tanizaki.The Berlin Affair featuring Gudrun Landgrebe and Kevin McNally is streaming on Paramount+, and streaming on Epix. It's a drama and thriller movie with a less than average IMDb audience rating of 5.4 (550 votes).
