Franz Rogowski, (also at SWIFF'22 with Undine) shines in this stunning post World War II drama set in a world where love is forbidden by law and punished with imprisonment.


Holocaust survivor Hans (Rogowski) is caught in a continuous cycle of incarceration as a result of Paragraph 175 - a law that makes homosexuality a crime. Behind bars, he meets the surly, guarded Viktor, with whom he develops a deep, decades-spanning bond.

Playing out over three interweaving timelines, Great Freedom is a tender, lyrical meditation on the power of love, human connection, and their ability to transcend even the bleakest of circumstances.

“…Meise’s film is an exquisite marriage of personal, political and sensual storytelling…”
– Variety

In German with English subtitles.
