From the director of the critically acclaimed Barbara, comes a searing tale of a disfigured concentration camp survivor, given a new face after suffering traumatic injuries during her internment, now seeking to find her husband who may, or may not, have betrayed her to the Nazis. But will he recognise her? A dark, intricate and psychologically complex film noir, dealing with Germany’s troubled society in the wake of World War ll.
Petzold’s best film, and an early contender for one of the year’s finest.
