The Mark of the AngelBook - 1999
In the spring of 1957, a young German girl arrives in Paris to take a position as housekeeper to a bachelor flautist. Soon Saffie and Raphael are married and a son, Emil, is born. One day, Saffie and Emil go on errands to the Marais where they encounter an intriguing instrument maker, Andras. A passionate affair that will last a decade begins immediately. Framed within the love triangle is an exploration of the ways in which individual lives and historical events intersect, from the Soviet invasion of Budapest to the Kennedy assassination, and the different ways in which the German girl and the Hungarian Jew remember World War II and the Algerian war for independence.
