Never Look Away

‘Never Look Away’ – a character-rich film set in Germany from 1937 to 1966

Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck’s new movie, “Never Look Away,” has been nominated for a Best Foreign Language Oscar at this year’s Academy Awards. And no wonder. It has the epic incident-laden sweep of something by Tolstoy or Dickens.  

If von Donnersmarck’s name is in the least bit familiar, it’s probably for one of two reasons.
