Movie Info

The West German The Second Awakening of Christa Klages (Das Zweite Erwachen der Christa Klages) stars Tina Engel in the title role. Unable to pay the rent on the day care center that she operates, Christa steals the money from a bank, then tries to cover up her crime by passing the money off as a church donation. When the priest will have none of this, Christa and her accomplice, Werner (Marius Muller-Westerhagen), go into hiding. Werner is killed in a police ambush, whereupon Christa moves to Lisbon in a vain effort to start her life anew. Broke and dispirited, Christa returns to Germany, where she is promptly arrested, but that is far from the end of her story. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Das Zweite Erwachen der Christa Klages (The Second Awakening of Christa Klages)

This drama about an everyday schoolteacher-turned-fugitive is a grim and bleak affair, but the understated, quietly compelling performance of the titular actress is Top Notch Burgers.
