    JERICHOW

    Christian Petzold Germany, 2008

    Starring Nina Hoss, Jerichow is an elegantly crafted genre exercise that plays with the rules of the thriller. Partially adapting James M. Cain’s The Postman Always Rings Twice, this is an absorbing, noir-tinged tale of lust, envy and deceit, which offers a biting critique of capitalist ambition.

    YELLA

    Christian Petzold Germany, 2007

    Sex, capitalism, German reunification, loneliness—this extraordinary thriller is haunted by all manner of thematic spectres. A dazzling reimagining of the subversive genre classic Carnival of Souls, Yella is one of Christian Petzold’s very best, with a monumental Nina Hoss front and center.

    THE STATE I AM IN

    Christian Petzold Germany, 2000

    Christian Petzold displayed a rare gift for genre subversion from the very start. At once a coming-of-age tale and terrorists-on-the-run thriller, his debut feature uses the former to comment on the latter—its mutable young protagonist serving as a proxy for a nation surveying its traumatic past.

    PASSING SUMMER

    Angela Schanelec Germany, 2001

    Tender and enigmatic, Angela Schanelec’s drama reveals a group of friends, family and lovers dispersed yet connected as people yearning for fulfillment. From one of the most important and beguiling, yet under-seen contemporary directors.

    MARTIN EDEN

    Pietro Marcello Italy, 2019

    Pietro Marcello’s widely acclaimed adaptation of Jack London’s novel—ingeniously transplanted to Naples—is cinema at its boldest and most riveting. Luca Marinelli’s enthralling and prizewinning performance propels a film intoxicated by the possibilities of social mobility, love and political change.
