Film runs Sunday, January 20, 2013 - Tuesday, January 22, 2013
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 ‘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 band’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.
