The German Lesson

The German Lesson

Summer 1961, Germany. Emil (Dennis Mojen) arrives at DEFA Studio
Babelsberg to begin working as an extra when he falls in love with a French
dance-double, Milou (Emilia Schüle). Though it’s love at first sight, they are torn
apart when East Germany closes its border and erects the Berlin Wall just days
after they first meet. Milou returns to Paris. Emil remains in East Germany,
crushed by the fact that the love of his life just slipped through his hands… that is,
until he sets in motion a daring and adorably romantic plan.
