Phoenix Trailer

"Quit playing Nelly! I know you're not her!" Sundance Selects + IFC Films have debuted a US trailer for the new film from German filmmaker Christian Petzold, titled Phoenix, a post-WWII-set Hitchcockian mystery about a woman who survives a concentration camp with a disfigured face. She attempts to find her husband and figure out if he betrayed her, while pretending to be a different person all along. Acclaimed German actress Nina Hoss stars, along with Ronald Zehrfeld and Nina Kunzendorf. The film premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year, and the trailer includes some very positive quotes in praise of the complex narrative. If you're into mysteries or thrillers involving false identities and scorned partners, this is for you.

Here's the official US trailer for Christian Petzold's Phoenix, (embedded) in high def from Apple:

As an alternative, here's the original international trailer for Phoenix initially released last year:

Nelly (Hoss), a German-Jewish nightclub singer, has survived a concentration camp, but with her face disfigured by a bullet wound. After reconstructive surgery, Nelly emerges with a new face, one similar but different enough that her former husband, Johnny (Zehrfeld), doesn’t recognize her. Rather than reveal herself, Nelly walks into a dangerous game of duplicity and disguise as she tries to figure out if the man she loves may have betrayed her to the Nazis. Phoenix is co-written & directed by award-winning German filmmaker Christian Petzold, of The State I Am In, Yella, Jerichow and Barbara previously. IFC Films + Sundance Selects will release Petzold's film Phoenix in limited US theaters starting July 24th this summer.
