Review – Phoenix

In rather limited release and coming to Seattle this weekend, Phoenix is one of the year’s truly terrific films. It’s a stunning film from Germany, with a plot that is both odd and instantly intriguing. IMDB sums it up best. “A disfigured concentration-camp survivor (Nina Hoss), unrecognizable after facial reconstruction surgery, searches ravaged postwar Berlin for the husband (Ronald Zehrfeld) who might have betrayed her to the Nazis.”

Old and new identities, sins of the past and forgiveness are but a few of the themes running through out the picture. Go. Go now. Or read my review and then go.
