Phoenix Trailer

"You look very similar to someone." If you're interested in mysterious German suspense dramas, then you won't want to miss this one. Phoenix is the latest film from German filmmaker Christian Petzold, and it just premiered at the Toronto Film Festival this week. To compliment its festival unveiling, the production has released the first trailer. The film stars Nina Hoss (A Woman in Berlin, Barbara, A Most Wanted Man) as a concentration camp survivor who ends up searching through postwar Berlin to find the man she believes betrayed her to the Nazis. The cast includes Ronald Zehrfeld and Nina Kunzendorf. I can't say this looks like something everyone will enjoy, but there's certainly an intriguing element to it. Take a look.

Here's the first official trailer for Christian Petzold's Phoenix, posted on Vimeo (found via SlashFilm):

Plot from the TIFF guide: "A concentration-camp survivor (Nina Hoss) searches ravaged postwar Berlin for the husband who might have betrayed her to the Nazis, in this gripping drama from leading German filmmaker Christian Petzold." Phoenix is the latest film from acclaimed German director Christian Petzold, of the films The State I Am In, Ghosts, Yella, Jerichow, Barbara and the short film Beats Being Dead. Via TIFF: "Gorgeously shot, featuring impeccable art direction and a faultless score, and with two powerhouse performances in the leading roles, Phoenix is an intricate drama that once again affirms Petzold as one of the most accomplished filmmakers working today." After Toronto it opens in Germany, but no US date yet.
