Jeder Stirbt Für Sich Allein Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Anna and Otto Quangel (Hildegaard Knef and Carl Raddatz) are an elderly couple during the time of the Nazi domination of Germany. When their son is killed while fighting to occupy France, they are shocked out of their complacency and begin sending postcards all over Berlin with the inscription "The Fuhrer has murdered my son." This earns them the ire of the Gestapo -- and a death sentence. With the help of friends, this brave couple manages to meet their deaths with a rare dignity. On its initial release in Germany, this movie was met with open weeping and cheers for the performance of the seldom-seen but highly regarded actress Hildegaard Knef. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
