(Konrad Wolf, East Germany 1980) (M).

"A solid, engrossing work in a traditional style directed by the late Konrad Wolf (1925-1982), widely regarded as East Germany's leading director, and written by Wolfgang Kohlhaase, considered as major a figure as Wolf. Auburn-haired, pretty and irresistibly impish, Renate Krossner was voted best actress at the 1980 Berlin Film Festival for her portrayal of the determined Sunny, who is subjected to repeated assaults on her dignity as a member of a small, impoverished touring musical revue that plays just about any venue it can grab. Sunny's struggle to escape once and for all her drab day job as a factory worker is further complicated by her love life... Solo Sunny is an affectionate, poignant portrait of a survivor, a young woman insisting on living on her own terms. What's more, it is a quite honest depiction of the stable but fairly impoverished life in what was the closed society of East Germany." - Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times, 19 May 1990.

Screened in cooperation with the Goethe-Institut.
