old-age: Vera Brühne

The case of Vera Brühne (Corinna Harfouch) was one of Germany’s most notorious and controversial crime cases. After years in prison she was released: an appeal court apparently deciding that the original verdict was more to do with her (like Ruth Ellis) being the wrong sort of woman rather than the facts of the case. But by no means everyone agreed.

Robert Rebele was the special effects artist responsible for supplying prosthetics: Gerhard Nemetz and Gerlinde Kunz were makeup artists on this production.
