Never Look Away 2019 / The Follow-up to The Lives of Others


It’s impossible to describe this incredible movie as one thing or the other. It’s an epic three-hour saga that takes you through the Nazi era, the communist era, the rise of capitalism, and the East and West German divide. But more than its historic value, it’s a coming-of-age story, one that is based on the experiences of famed German artist Gerhard Richter. It’s also a romance, following his experiences finding love and being hit with loss (in no particular order). If you liked the director’s other work, the Oscar-winning The Lives of Others, you’re sure to love this too.

Just watched this last night – 3 hours flew by and when it ended I wanted more. Tom Schilling, and Paula Beer act the main characters and let me just say all 3 give riveting performances – as does the other main Sebastian Koch, a creepy in-denial former ss murderer. I loved especially how the portrayal of art itself changes throughout the movie. 100% recommend.
