The State I Am In (2000)

Christian Petzold directs Julia Hummer, Barbara Auer and Richy Müller in this German drama about a family – long on the run after a decade old terrorist action – who struggle to maintain their cover once their teen daughter starts quietly rebelling.

Nice little mix of coming of age drama and thriller. Neither genre dominates the mood. Very relaxed but none the poorer for it. The softly spoken lead girl is particularly good.
