‘From Hilde, With Love’: Liv Lisa Fries Talks Powerful And Timely Berlinale Competition Entry About Nazi Resistance Heroine; Watch First Footage

Babylon Berlin star Liv Lisa Fries spoke to us about her powerful new movie which debuts at the Berlinale.

Andreas Dresen’s affecting and pared back film, set in Berlin during the Second World War, charts the little known story of Hilde and Hans Coppi, a young couple who courageously become members of an anti-Nazi group known as The Red Orchestra (Die Rote Kapelle). Director Dresen describes the film as “a modern drama set in a difficult time, plain and straightforward, joyful and strong, renouncing heavy music, opulent production design or costumes. Die Rote Kapelle was a loose network of several Berlin-based resistance movements, more than 150 opponents to the Nazi Regime, mainly women, all coming from different social backgrounds and adherents of different ideologies.
