Leidenschaften 1985
Description: In 1938 Berlin, Gudrun Landgrebe, wife of Nazi functionary Kevin McNally, starts taking art lessons. She makes the acquaintance of other student, Japanese ambassador's daughter Mio Takaki. Later afterwards, the two girls start a passionate lesbian affair. This leads to a chain reaction of disaster and tragedy, culminating with the inevitable intervention of the Gestapo. Despite the film's galloping sexual passions, The Berlin Affair is an exercise in aloofness, keeping the characters at arm's length-surprising, considering that the director was Liliana Cavani, auteur of the erotic classic The Night Porter (1974). The movie was based on The Buddhist Cross, a novel by Junichiro Tanizaki.
Released: 01 Oct 1985 Director: Liliana Cavani Writers: Liliana Cavani (screenplay), Roberta Mazzoni (screenplay), Jun'ichirô Tanizaki (novel) Actors: Gudrun Landgrebe, Kevin McNally, Mio Takaki, Hanns Zischler Genres: Drama

Leidenschaften Reviews:

It has long been fashionable in critical circles to bash the movies of Liliana Cavani. Her movies tend to present sleazy weak life characters---------even when they live in palatial mansions. Her controversial NIGHT PORTER was unjustly accused of being deplorable, and insult to the intelligence of the average moviegoer, an offense to Jews and women, and generally condemned by everyone of cinematic importance. For me, she is the modern purveyor of movie noir at it's darkest.THE BERLIN AFFAIR says the storyline of Mitsuko, daughter of the Japanese ambassador to Germany during the Nazi era. She is publicly quiet and demure, but in private, flamboyantly bisexual and seduces the wife of a high Nazi official-------and eventually the husband himself. This leads to a rather unusual ménage a trois with every member of the triangle becoming more and more jealous of the others. Eventually, this self-destructive relationship becomes harder and harder to resist in spite of the private dangers to the individuals and their respective families and political causes.It would be simple to dismiss this movie as other sleazy sex opera from Cavani. But a nice deal is going on in this film---------politically, sexually, socially, racially and artistically. There is a definite message for those willing to see it-------and it would be more fun for every viewer to search it for himself. Ignore Leonard Maltin's opinion and decide for yourself.


Liliana Cavani is a girl of literature. Here she takes Tanizaki's Japanese classic "The Budhist Cross" and transports it to Berlin in the oppressive 30ies. Nazi paranoia is on the look out, ironically, for deviants within German society. In this situation High Society. As heads start to roll more than one personality has something to hide. A study in juxtaposition of fire and ice, truth and falseness, faith and betrayal, Berlin Affair is not an 'easy' movie but yes an intriguing one. All the characters seem to transport and react with authentic 'period' ease, formal but never artificial. Gudrun Landgrebe is a revelation. Aloof but sensual she evokes the type of respect usually reserved for the nice 'stars' of Hollywood's heyday. Kevin MacNally reminds us of Dirk Bogarde, Mio Takaki is in no method the stereotype of Asian beauty, making her 'powers' seem all the more credible. Andrea Prodan as the 'blackmailing' Josif Benno creates an intriguing hero with only a several scenes. In short, everybody is a 'victim' in this drama, which like a Webster enjoy leaves us with a scene strewn with corpses. Adore the Sets,Costumes and pristine photography. A definite Visconti experience from Italy's dame of discomfort, Liliana Cavani.


In 1938, in Berlin, Louise von Hollendorf (Gudrun Landgrebe) is a well married girl frequenting art classes. Her husband Heinz von Hollendorf (Kevin McNally) is a successful politician in a pre-war German and they have an perfect relationship. During the class, Louise meets Mitsuko Matsugae (Mio Takaki), an exotica and very discreet Japanese young woman, daughter of the Ambassador of Japan in Berlin. They begin a friendship that is followed by a lesbian love between them. Mitsuko indeed is a very seductive and amoral bisexual girl and seduces also Heinz. This relationship ends in a tragedy. This dark and massive romance has a unbelievable photography, and a pretty reconstitution of a pre-war period. The cast has a nice performance and this film is really very underrated, maybe because of the polemical and perfect director Liliana Cavani. She had the courage of making the superb 'Night Porter', which offended many persons, and since them certain cinema critics have decided to crucifixe her work. The manipulated public opinion, based on these unfair critics, sometimes is induced to 'not-like' any of her films. 'Berlin Affair' is a movie not suggested for all audience. My vote is seven.Title (Brazil): 'Berlin Affair'
