Circle Of Deceit

"Excellent"

Circle Of Deceit Review


It takes a virtuoso to set a love story in war-torn Beirut, but if anyone is up to the task it's going to be Volker Schlöndorff, the master behind The Tin Drum and other fine fare. With Bruno Ganz and Fassbinder regular Hanna Schygulla running the show, an even wider safety net is laid out -- Schlöndorff's story is emotional and earnest, beautifully composed, and full of thought: both about the horrors of modern warfare and the horrors of love.

Aka Die Fälschung.
