Regizat de Christian Petzold
Germania de Est, 2012


In 1980s East Germany, Barbara is a Berlin doctor banished to a country medical clinic for applying for an exit visa. Deeply unhappy with her reassignment and fearful of her co-workers as possible Stasi informants, Barbara stays aloof, especially from the good natured clinic head, Andre.

Părerea noastră

Christian Petzold and Nina Hoss are two of contemporary German cinema’s best talents, and before Phoenix they made Barbara: a character study driven by Hoss’s striking, subtle performance. A tense East Berlin-set political thriller that won Petzold the Berlinale’s Silver Bear for Best Director.

Barbara Regizat de Christian Petzold
In a nod to melodramas like Stella Dallas (1937), Barbara ends with an enormous sacrifice by its steely lead character, though without the sentimentality and self-abnegation common to the “women’s weepie.”

All of this is conveyed through the subtlest nuances in looks and timing. Masterful stuff.

References to Turgenev and Mark Twain, and a virtuoso deconstruction of a Rembrandt painting make this literate, teasing work one that will surely reward repeated viewings.
