The Invention of Curried Sausage
Filmfest 2008

An ingenious, revealing, and charming tale about the invention of a popular German sidewalk food by a woman who met, seduced, and hid a German navy deserter in April, 1945, just before the war's end, later not telling him the war was over. "And what a story it is! Weaving wartime intrigue, clandestine love affairs, black-market subterfuge, and life during the Nazi era, Lena's story traces the development of the 'currywurst' while simultaneously mapping the effects of such diverse elements as war, love, and abandonment on the human spirit."
