Synopsis

The dishonorably discharged Afghanistan veteran Thomas returns to his home village of Jerichow. Ali, a local Turkish-German businessman, owner of a snack-bar chain, hires him as a driver. That’s when Thomas meets Laura, his Turkish boss’s young and attractive wife. A classic love triangle is born

Our take

Bringing to the thrills of genre movies the cool analysis of the arthouse, Christian Petzold embodies the thrilling underside of contemporary German cinema. This is his masterfully sly and noir-tinged remake of The Postman Always Rings Twice, starring Nina Hoss.
