The clip Michael visits his mother from The Reader (2008)
Where are we going?
I said I'll tell you when we get there.
You told me you liked surprises.
I like surprises.
She's grown, hasn't she?
I don't know. It's so long since
I saw her, Michael. How can I tell?
It's my fault.
We shouldn't have come unannounced.
Daddy's going to live in his own house.
Mother, I'm afraid I have some bad news.
Julia knows. We've already told her.
Gertrud and I, we are getting a divorce.
You don't come for your father's...
funeral, but you come for this?
It's not easy for me to visit this town.
Were you really so unhappy?
That's not what I'm saying.
It's not what I meant.
You mustn't worry about Gertrud.
I'm going to look after her.
She's already a state prosecutor,
so she earns far more than I do.
...I'm not worried about Gertrud.
I'm worried about you.
