Christian Petzold directs Nina Hoss, Ronald Zehrfeld and Rainer Bock in this German drama where a doctor in the Eighties plans to escape the GDR and is demoted to a rural hospital by the ever watchful Stasi.
As expected Nina Hoss delivers an icy but captivating central turn in this character study. Petzold again explores life and love on the run, his raison d‘être. While this probably won’t blow anyone’s socks off, it is quietly powerful and confident.
