In Germany, the elder Frau Traude Krueger gives piano classes in a prison for a few prisoners and the security guard Mütze. When she sees the rebel and aggressive Jenny Von Loeben playing piano, she immediately identifies her potential and offers to teach her for a competition. Frau Krueger finds that Jenny was a prodigy when she was a child; abused when she was a teenager and has been imprisoned for murdering and decapitating a man. Along the period they work together preparing for the exhibition, Frau Krueger discloses secrets about her love in World War II while the self-destructive Jenny has four minutes of glory and recognition of her talent.Written by

When student Jenny is at Frau Krüger's (b. 1926) home, a picture of Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827) and one of Wilhelm Furtwängler (1886-1954) can be seen on the wall above the piano. Earlier, we see a picture of Furtwängler when the young Krüger is being coerced by a member of the Nazi party to rebuke her friendship with her then student (circa 1944). See more »
In several sequences where we see Jenny playing the piano, the notes we hear do not correspond to the keys she plays. See more »
Vier Minuten. Hannah Herzsprung challenges the late Klaus Kinski.
I first saw Hannah Herzsprung in The Reader. It was a nice filler part. I saw her recently in The Baader-Meinhoff Komplex. It was a brief part, but very emotionally powerful. In Vier Minuten I found her performance astounding. It reminded me of Klaus Kinsi's performance in his Jesus Erloeser monologue. Hannah expresses a performance in Vier Minuten that completely makes me believe the frustration of a young woman permanently placed in prison. She has been convicted of murder. I was able to see the sorrow of being in that place, and found compassion for the circumstances. I did experience a sense of apprehension as I viewed the film. It comes down to the energy of the performance Hannah expresses. Don't take this film lightly. It is straight forward and brutally honest.
