A Woman in Berlin (German: Anonyma - Eine Frau in Berlin), known as The Downfall of Berlin Anonyma in the UK, is a 2008 German film directed by Max Färberböck. It is based on the autobiographical Eine Frau in Berlin first published anonymously and later credited to Marta Hillers who lived in Berlin at the end of World War II during and after the Battle of Berlin.


After being raped by a number of Soviet soldiers, the film's protagonist, Marta Hillers played by actress Nina Hoss, petitions the battalion's commanding officer for protection and, after an initial cold refusal, the officer finds himself seduced. He subsequently protects, feeds and parties with virtually her entire apartment complex—at what turns out to be a great cost to himself.
