He wants to show her a photo on an American newspaper website – the photo of a woman who bears an astonishing and inexplicable resemblance to his recently deceased wife, Sophie’smother. Paul asks his daughter to find the woman in the picture – Catarina Fabiani (Barbara Sukowa) a celebrated opera singer. Despite her misgivings, to please her father, Sophie reluctantly agrees.
