FILM | Lost Zweig
Leading role, Directed by Sylvio Back, Brazil 2001/2002

Ruth Rieser as Lotte Zweig, who willingly joins her husband in a double suicide.

“Lost Zweig” with Ruth Rieser in the female lead, drew great interest from the press at the international film festival in Rio de Janeiro (September 23 through October 7, 2004). More than the film itself, the portrayal of Lotte, the poet’s wife, won praise. An excerpt from a Brazilian daily newspaper:

„Especially noteworthy is the achievement of Ruth Rieser. She manages to impart to her character a great richness and depth. She can be credited with shaping the most impressive sequence of the entire film: the hours before her suicide, without words, but with a diversity of emotions that we feel through her wondrous silence.„ (O Globo, Rio de Janeiro)
