This Friday, Phoenix replaces The Stanford Prison Experiment at the Art Mission Theater.
About Phoenix: Nelly Lenz, a Jewish singer, has survived the Nazi concentration camps but at what cost? She is disfigured and has had to undergo facial surgery. Back in what is left of Berlin, accompanied by her faithful friend Lene, she has only one thing in mind: finding Johnny, her musician husband, in the ruins of the city. She wants to know if he still loves her and if he has betrayed her, as Lene claims he has. She does meet him but Johnny does not recognize her. Worse, he asks her to impersonate... Nelly, with a view to grabbing her inheritance.
Stars: Nina Hoss, Ronald Zehrfeld and Nina Kunzendorf. Rated PG-13. Run time 98 minutes.
