20 – Veronika Voss (1982)


“I’m interested in losers. She’s already lost,” says an arts journalist of Veronika Voss (Rosel Zech), a once great actress now reduced to drug dependency and hysteria. One rainy night Veronika washes into the path of sports journalist Robert Krohn (Hilmar Thate) igniting an obsession and drawing him into her tragic life.

Like: If Marilyn Monroe had enjoyed the fate of Norma Desmond and fallen into the care of Nurse Ratched.

Core truth: Despair.
