Synopsis

Yella has decided to leave her small town in eastern Germany for a new life on the other side of the Elbe. But strange voices and sounds are plaguing Yella—truths from her past coming back to haunt her.

Our take

German auteur Christian Petzold has been collaborating with his leading actress Nina Hoss for years with films such as Barbara or Phoenix. The two work magic together: before these films, she took home Berlin’s Best Actress Silver Bear for her performance in Yella, Petzold’s simmering thriller.
