Lale Andersen - The Voice Of Lili Marleen

In the summer of 1999, as the German KFOR soldiers in Kosovo settled in their barracks, they turned on the radio to the program "Radio Prizren". Every evening, the station broadcasted the three-hour program "Radio Andernach" from the German army′s radio station "Soldiers for Soldiers".


News from back home and all the current hits. One evening, a smoky voice from the past came through the radio: Lale Andersen sang "Lili Marleen".

The film portrays more than just the life story of the singer, it traces the phenomenon of "Lili Marleen" and the resulting legend. What was the mix of talent, luck, Zeitgeist and decline that made Lale Andersen world-famous with one song? What is the source of the fascination with the song that, even today, moves the hearts of soldiers? Legend and reality - for behind the singer′s glowing star façade hid a person full of contradiction and inner tragedy.
