Aro Recommended Phoenix


Germany 2014, 98 minutes
Dir. Christian Petzold
In German with English subtitles
Rating: [M] Adult themes
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Drama, Suspense


“Both a powerful allegory for post-war regeneration and a rich Hitchcockian tale of mistaken identity.”~Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter

Aroview: The director of YELLA and BARBARA reunites with his ingenue Nina Hoss for this romantic tale of deception about a concentration camp survivor who after undergoing reconstructive surgery sets out to determine if her husband betrayed her to the Nazis.

While not quite as wholly plausible as BARBARA, this similarly brims with ambiguity, political mistrust and sexual tension.
