Rosenstrasse (2003), dir. Margarethe von Trotta. 136 min. In German with English subtitles.
After the death of her father, Hannah becomes concerned with the strange behavior of her mother. As her mother's troubled childhood is revealed, Hannah realizes how little she ever knew. In "Rosenstrasse", two stories blend into a tapestry of love and courage. The film depicts a family drama of estrangement between a mother and her daughter, and the story of German women who staged a protest on the street named Rosenstrasse to free their Jewish husbands from certain extermination.
