Storyline

Barbara is a successful middle aged woman - a respected architect, a great mother and wife, has good friends; leads the good life in Berlin. Out of nowhere seemingly, but definitely out of her past, Ilke appears - her daughter from a relationship with a Turkish immigrant some 25 years ago. Ilke was raised by her father, who became a wealthy businessman and educated Ilke at Europe's best schools, but without the benefit of a mother. After the Turk's death, Ilke comes to Berlin with a great deal of cash. Through a detective with mysterious contacts, one day Ilke walks into Barbara's life, and family, and is quickly accepted. However, as past details are revealed, Barbara in particular has to face what she had set aside so long ago. Written by Gonz30

Outstanding Female Ensemble Cast
10 November 2003 | by (France(film seen in S.Paulo, Brazil)) – See all my reviews

RED AND BLUE is very much a woman's story; a film about the female universe in Germany. This universe is well represented in ethnicity (a Turkish and a Jewish woman are among the principals), in generations, and socio-economic levels.

The film may not play well to "typical" male audiences, but most women, particularly urban German women will connect with the film in a very positive way. Artistically, the film features an ensemble female cast unsurpassed in recent German cinema. A must see for lovers of this genre.
