- A Woman in Berlin (Anonyma – Eine Frau in Berlin) – Strand Releasing, 131 mins. – Based on the diary of the woman who struggled to survive sexual abuse in post-WW II Berlin, where conquering Soviet soldiers rampantly raped German women. ’Anonyma’ forms a liaison with a Russian soldier whom she considered to be her lover and protector–not a rapist.
