"Afire is a captivating and hypnotic experience. Petzold cinema at its purest."
AFIRE (Roter Himmel)(GERMANY) 2023
Drama / Romance
Director : Christian Petzold
Starring : Thomas Schubert
1 hr 42 min
Afire” (its original German title is “Roter Himmel” or “Red Sky”) is the second film of a quartet whose theme will be the elements; Petzold’s last film, “Undine,” had water as its defining element. The fire in this film spreads through forests on the German island where Leon and Felix have gone on a work retreat.
After their car breaks down and they’re forced to hoof it to a vacation house owned by Felix’s family, Leon and Felix, the precise nature of whose relationship we are never quite sure of, are surprised that there’s another lodger there. The beguiling Nadja is played by the beguiling Paula Beer in the third of her films with Petzold.
This film is being screened as part of Ayr Film Society's long association with the Goethe Institute in Glasgow
