The filmmaker behind "The Lives of Others" returns to divided 20th century Germany in "Never Look Away". The film premiered in Venice Tuesday and is already being talked about as his second potential Oscar winner. After fleeing to the West, he is equally unimpressed by the fatuous conceptual art then in vogue, and struggles to find his own vision.At the very heart of the film, which spans about four decades, is his love for Ellie, the beautiful daughter of a wealthy family with which, he later realizes, his life is already fatefully entwined.
