Christian Petzold directs Benno Furmann, Nina Hoss and Hilmi Sozer in this German neo-noir where a penniless ex-soldier begins working for a paranoid businessman with a beautiful young wife.
Minimalist neo-noir with fine acting from Hilmi Sozer. Gives voice to the entrepreneurial immigrant experience, both as a perpetual outsider and marked success compared to the feckless, broke natives.
