Top 200 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2023: #73. Emily Atef’s Some Day We Will Tell Each Other Everything
Irgendwann werden wir uns alles erzählen
Quickly after her Cannes Un Certain Regard premiere of More Than Ever, Emily Atef moved onto her next project – the German language Irgendwann werden wir uns alles erzählen (aka Some Day We Will Tell Each Other Everything). Production took place in June with newcomer Marlene Burow and Felix Kramer. The French-Iranian filmmaker looks at a romance that from today’s perspective might not pass. Rohfilm Factory’s Karsten Stöter (3 Days In Quiberon) reteams with Atef as the film’s producer. It takes place in the backdrop of the first summer after the Berlin wall comes down. Naturally, we think the Berlinale would want to feature the filmmaker in competition.
Gist: An adaptation of Daniela Krien’s novel, this coming-of-age story set in the 1990s, amidst the last days of the GDR. The 17-year-old protagonist, Maria, lives on a farm with her boyfriend. One day, an older man moves into the neighbourhood. Maria and Henner start a love affair, which takes a tragic turn.
Release Date/Prediction: This should be part of the comp line-up for the Golden Bear.
