Germany | 2012 | Christian Petzold
Germany’s official entry for this year’s foreign language film Oscar was one of the most gripping and acclaimed movies of 2012, with unanimous favorable reviews on metacrtic.com and an overall rating of 86 out of 100. Nina Hoss, the regular muse of director Christian Petzold (Yella, Jerichow), plays a surgeon in 1980 East Germany who is demoted to a small rural hospital on the Baltic Sea after she expresses a desire to leave the repressive GDR. There, under the watchful eyes of a Stasi spies, she continues to plot her escape. “Terrific…As smart, thoughtful and emotionally involving as just about anything that's out there.” –The L.A. Times.
