This steamy, rich adaptation of Daniela Krien’s acclaimed novel, it is 1990 and 19-year-old Maria is spending the summer after the fall of the Berlin Wall with her boyfriend Johannes on his family’s farm in Thuringia, in former East Germany. While spending her days wandering through the property and reading Dostoevsky, she meets Henner, the taciturn next door neighbor. Though he is bullheaded and twice her age, Henner—charismatic, damaged, lonely—draws Maria in, and soon the two are engaged in a passionate and intense affair. Lusciously shot and both emotionally and erotically intense, Emily Atef (MORE THAN EVER) delivers a visually stunning portrayal of both personal and national transformation against the backdrop of a shifting era.
