Let's go to watch a new movie of Andrei Konchalovsky "Paradise".

"Shot in black and white by cinematographer Alexander Simonov, the drama tells the story of Olga, Jules and Helmut, whose paths cross amidst the devastation of war. Olga (Julia Vysotskaya) is a beautiful Russian aristocrat émigrée and member of the French Resistance; Jules (Philippe Duquesne) is a French Nazi collaborator who is assigned to investigate her case; and Helmut (Christian Clauss) is a high-ranking, yet naïve German SS officer who once fell madly in love with Olga and meets her again when she is shipped to a concentration camp. While they recount their stories, the film flashes back to the end of World War II and the days when their destinies crossed."

The film won the Founder’s Award at the Protected content Film Festival; Best Director of Photography for Simonov, Best Actress and the Young Jury Award for Best Actress — both for Vysotskaya — at the Protected content International Film Festival; the Silver Astor Award for Best Screenplay at Protected content del Plata International Film Festival; and The Schoumann Award for Jewish Cinema at the Jerusalem Jewish Film Festival.
