Deutscher Filmpreis Award Winners

Shortly before the outbreak of World War II, a Jewish couple and their young daughter emigrate from Germany to Kenya to escape the Nazis, and are forced to come to terms with a new life on an unfamiliar continent. Not all members of the family are happy with this drastic change -- but going home isn't an option. Based on Stefanie Zweig's autobiographical novel, director Caroline Link's epic drama won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. (141 min)
