LEO & CLAIRE

Life-loving Leo Katzenberger, his wife Claire, the attractive young photographer Irene and the residents of a Nuremberg tenement building - this is the constellation in which passion, resentment, love of life and scandal-mongering transform a harmless erotic encounter into a deadly threat.

In his feature film based on actual events, Joseph Vilsmaier relates a tragic story that is both thrilling and sensual, a tale of love, eroticism and death during the Third Reich. It is a story of bravery and friendship, as well as of viciousness and ignorance that still moves us today.
