Micaela  Jary - The Cinema on the Jungfernstieg


A family saga around a cinema in post-war Hamburg

Hamburg in January 1947: The centre of Hamburg was badly bombed during the war, and it is here that Lili Paal is – not very successfully – running an improvised cinema.

Her toughest rival is the movie theatre belonging to Hilde Westphal, her stepsister. Hilde leaves virtually no stones unturned to make life difficult for Lili, but Lili fights on. Her encounter with the charismatic film director Leon Caspari finally leads to the longed-for upturn for her cinema – and brings love back into her life.

But then Lili's husband returns home from war imprisonment and Lili is torn about what she should do. Hilde can at last triumph again.

The start of the major Cinema Saga set in post-war Germany
