Alone in Berlin is a 2016 war drama film directed by Vincent Pérez and written by Pérez and Achim von Borries, based on the 1947 fictionalized novel Every Man Dies Alone by Hans Fallada.
The novel’s characters Otto and Anna Quangel are based on the real lives of Otto and Elise Hampel.
When their son dies in France, the couple start writing postcards to urge people to protest against Adolf Hitler and the Nazi regime.
The film stars Emma Thompson, Brendan Gleeson, and Daniel Brühl. Principal photography began on 27 March 2015 in Berlin.
It was selected to compete for the Golden Bear at the 66th Berlin International Film Festival.
This true-life tale of courage unfolds against the tumultuous backdrop of Berlin in 1940.
Otto and Anna Quangel are a working class husband and wife doing their best to ride out the war.
When their son is killed fighting on the frontlines, however, everything changes.
They begin pouring their rage and grief into postcards emblazoned with anti-Nazi slogans,
risking everything to disseminate their messages of protest across the city.
But this seemingly small act of subversion rattles the regime, including a police inspector who
will not rest until the culprits have been caught.

CANALETTO & THE ART OF VENICE – at The Queen’s Gallery, Buckingham Palace Directed by David Bickerstaff .
EXHIBITION ON SCREEN open its fifth season with Canaletto & the Art of Venice, an immersive journey into the life and art of Venice’s famous view-painter. No artist better captures the essence and allure of Venice than Giovanni Antonio Canal, better known as Canaletto.
The remarkable group of over 200 paintings, drawings and prints on display offer unparalleled insight into the artistry of Canaletto and his contemporaries, and the city he became a master at capturing. The film also offers the chance to step inside two official royal residences – Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle – to learn more about the artist, and Joseph Smith, the man who introduced Canaletto to Britain.
Cinema-goers will embark on their very own 21st century Grand Tour, visiting the sites enjoyed by their 18th century counterparts and immortalised in Canaletto’s views – from the Rialto Bridge to the Piazza San Marco, and the Palazzo Ducale to the Church of Santi Giovanni e Paolo. Guided by Royal Collection Trust curators and the world’s leading experts in Venetian history, the film is not only a wonderful way to see the exhibition, but an opportunity to get closer to Canaletto and the city that inspired him.
Doors open 1.30pm Screening 2.00pm
