DER ÜBERLÄUFER

Directed by Academy Award®-winner Florian Gallenberger from Siegfried Lenz’s international bestseller, DER ÜBERLÄUFER is set in the summer of 1944. Walter Proska is about to return to the Eastern Front when his train is blown up by partisans. Together with a scattered bunch of German soldiers, cut off from the front, he awaits certain death while the commands of his superior officer b­come more and more senseless and inhuman. Proska’s encounter with the young Polish partisan Wanda and his friendship with his comrade Kürschner increasingly make him doubt his oath of allegiance. As the Red Army draws closer, Proska becomes a prisoner of war and can save himself only by defecting to the enemy.
