CGiii Comment

A stunning love story of two women trapped by war and circumstance in Nazi-era Czechoslovakia.

Shot on location at the historic Villa Tugendhat, this film captures the unwavering hope of love as seen through the eyes of Hana (Carice van Houten, Game of Thrones) and Liesel who share an intense friendship which frequently verges on more.

Based on Simon Mawer’s Booker Prize-shortlisted novel of the same name, in turn based loosely on the lives of the Tugendhat family saga, this era-spanning film is an historical, visual feast.

As Hana and Liesel are challenged time and again by love and distance, and the decades march on, the only constant is the glass room of the Villa Tugendhat, steadfast in its refusal to bend or change and a subconscious inspiration for the fateful lovers.
