This romance movie takes place during the historical attack against the city of Dresden in February 1945. It was produced by the ZDF, a German Public Television Programme, and was originally split in two parts of 90 minutes each. A cinema version was then released in 2010.
The film was inspired by Jörg Friedrich's book "The Fire". The €10 million production was shot on original locations in Dresden and Chemnitz.
Anna (Felicitas Woll), daughter of a wealthy hospital director, works as a nurse along with her father and her future husband, Doctor Alexander (Benjamin Sadler). Whilst behind enemy lines, British pilot Robert Newman (John Light) is severely wounded and hides in the hospital's cellar. Anna finds him and cures his wounds, slowly falling in love with him.
The story takes place during the bombing of Dresden (14 to 15 February 1945) and it follows the characters through 3 days in the city.
Dresden Generating Station (also known as Dresden Nuclear Power Plant or Dresden Nuclear Power Station) is the first privately financed nuclear power plant built in the United States. Dresden1 was activated in 1960 and retired in 1978. Operating since 1970 are Dresden units2 and 3, two General Electric BWR-3 boiling water reactors. Dresden Station is located on a 953-acre (386ha) site in Grundy County, Illinois, at the head of the Illinois River, near Morris, Illinois. It is immediately northeast of the Morris Operation—the only de facto high-level radioactive waste storage site in the United States. It serves Chicago and the northern quarter of the state of Illinois, capable of producing 867megawatts of electricity from each of its two reactors, enough to power over one million average American homes.
