Dir. Baran Bo Odar, Germany 2010, 122 min, German with English subtitles, digital
When a child's bicycle is discovered in a wheat field - in the exact location of a heinous crime committed 23 years earlier - and when it is later discovered that local girl Sinikka is mysteriously missing, a town is thrown into a haze of anxious uncertainty. At once a tense police procedural and a subtle yet devastating portrayal of a family's struggle to come to terms with the unthinkable, director In this thriller Burkhardt Klaussner plays a retired detective, who relives the horror of a case, he was unable to solve.
