Australian premiere

Featuring a captivating central performance from Liv Lisa Fries (Babylon Berlin), this affecting historical drama from multi award-winning director Andreas Dresen depicts the remarkable true story of a young German woman drawn into the anti-Nazi resistance movement during World War II.

Berlin, 1942. When the shy, heavily pregnant Hilde Coppi (Fries) is suddenly detained by the Gestapo, she pleads ignorance to their accusations that she has aided her lover, Hans (Johannes Hegemann), in transcribing coded radio transmissions to and from Moscow. However, it appears there is more evidence against Hilde than anticipated, given many of the other activists involved in their group – who will become known as Die Rote Kapelle (“The Red Orchestra”) – have also been arrested.

Compelled to give birth in custody, Hilde is informed that her child may be taken from her. As Hilde awaits her sentencing, she reminisces about her involvement with Hans and their joyful romance, the most beautiful summer of her life.

Anchored by the extraordinary Fries, Dresen’s compelling and humanistic From Hilde, With Love is a deeply moving and inspiring achievement.

“Top drawer humanist cinema. Lush, evocative and affecting.” - The Hollywood Reporter
