In 1930s Berlin, Max (Clive Owen) sleeps with German officer (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), only to see him killed by his fellow Nazis the next morning. Refusing an offer of new papers from his Uncle Freddie (Ian McKellan) for fear of leaving his boyfriend Rudy behind, Max and Rudy are found by the Gestapo, to whom Max lies about his homosexuality and his relationship with Rudy. Bound for the Dachau concentration camp, Max will have to reckon with his identity, and his dignity, in the face of terrible persecution. Winner of the Award of the Youth in the Foreign Film Category at the Cannes Film Festival. Nominated for Outstanding Film at the GLAAD Media Awards. "...its dramatic story, powerful theme and historical importance are undeniable." - Bob Satuloff, Film Journal International
