Germany 2008, Dir. Christian Petzold, 93min, color, starring Benno Fürmann, Nina Hoss, Hilmi Sözer, German w/Engl. subtitles, digital proj.
Former soldier Thomas and sexy Laura the wife of Thomas’s new boss Ali both have enormous debts.
After they get to know each other through Ali, a fiery passion ignites, but they need the self-made man of Turkish origins to keep their creditors at a safe distance.
Aided by some gorgeous, mostly sun-lit widescreen photography, Christian Petzold lets his story unfold with the logic of a Greek tragedy.
