Perhaps they should never have met, but fate wanted otherwise. Monika and Joseph. She is a curator, he is an immigrant from Congo, a businessman with an unclear past and present. They meet during a police raid at a bar, when the first of many sparks flies between them.

MUBI's take

Against the backdrop of the German art world, this sensitive debut from director Lisa Bierwirth and producer Maren Ade (Toni Erdmann) unfolds with a delicate intimacy. Examining questions of class, cultural division, and liberal complacency, Prince is a poignantly romantic tale of mid-life desire.
