Max Raabe in Israel
Brigitte Bertele, Julia Willmann, 2012
Germany | German with English subtitles | 90 minutes

U.S. Premiere!

When the wildly popular Berlin-based singer Max Raabe and his Palast Orchester traveled to Israel with their show Nacht oder Nie (Tonight or Never), a review of German hits from the 1920s and ā€˜30s primarily written and originally performed by such talents as the Comedian Harmonists, Marlene Dietrich, Friedrich Hollaender and others, the reception was dramatic. This film captures Raabe and his bandā€™s thoughtful reactions to their emotionally and politically charged adventure, as well as the personal stories of concertgoers of different generations and their relationships to Germany.
