TV: How to with John Wilson, Season 3

FILM: Someday we will tell each other everything
Someday takes us back to a long, warm 1990s summer, in a finally reunited Germany. 19-year-old Maria (Marlene Burow) already lives with her kind-hearted boyfriend Johannes (Cedric Eich) when she meets Henner (Felix Kramer), a 40-year-old farmer living next door. The triangular drama is superbly acted, scoring five stars on CPH Culture. Emily Atef’s feature film is based on Daniela Krien’s novel of the same name; both collaborated on the project.
