Four Minutes

Dir: Chris Kraus



The award-winning Four Minutes sees wrongfully imprisoned piano prodigy Jenny, a Molotov cocktail of suppressed emotions and uncontrollable rage, locked in a constant battle with those around her.

Together with Traude, a professional musician who wants to expose Jenny’s talents at a national competition, the pair develop a volatile teacher-pupil relationship.

As the duo plan their intent to make it to the finals, it soon becomes apparent that, once there, Jenny will have only four minutes to prove herself, and no guarantee of freedom afterwards.

Four Minutes was heaped with praise upon its release in the UK, and is a truly special film that will not only appeal to lovers of music and drama, but anyone who is willing to be whisked away in a deeply moving story about love, honour and redemption.

Starring multiple award-winner Hannah Herzsprung (The Reader, The Baader-Meinhof Complex), Four Minutes is a cinematic tour de force that combines classical music, gritty prison drama and powerful performances to winning effect.
