Former theatre actress comes back to Rome and meets old and new friends.
The film opens space for Dona Romana, a religious leader widely known in Tocantins and in Brazil, to tell us her story and show us a little of her world, physically settled in the rural area of the city of Natividade, the oldest municipality in the state of Tocantins and history closely linked to slavery and Afro-descendant populations. His house is a unique temple, furnished with fantastic, beautiful and enigmatic drawings and other artifacts; works of art that speak of their belief, worldview and express their relationship with the transcendent. From his backyard emerge great sculptures that link the earthly world to other planes and dimensions, and speak of their religiosity, the nature of planet Earth and the future of humanity.

In 1938 Berlin, Gudrun Landgrebe, wife of Nazi functionary Kevin McNally, begins taking art lessons. She makes the acquaintance of another student, Japanese ambassador's daughter Mio Takaki. Soon afterwards, the two women begin a passionate lesbian affair. This leads to a chain reaction of disaster and tragedy, culminating with the inevitable intervention of the Gestapo. Despite the film's galloping sexual passions, The Berlin Affair is an exercise in aloofness, keeping the characters at arm's length-surprising, considering that the director was Liliana Cavani, auteur of the erotic classic The Night Porter (1974). The film was based on The Buddhist Cross, a novel by Junichiro Tanizaki.
