Christian Petzold’s tense, atmospheric and transfixing Cold War thriller Barbara was undoubtedly one of the best European films of 2012, and A Fistful of Culture has three DVD copies up for grabs courtesy of Madman. The film stars regular collaborator Nina Hoss as a doctor banished to a rural East German hospital as punishment for applying for an exit visa, and she soon finds herself entangled in unwanted romance and suspicions. Petzold’s latest is an intelligent and haunting character study, with a remarkable performance from Hoss, and those with a preference for slow-burn cinema will find themselves richly rewarded.
Barbara is available now on DVD. Check out the trailer below.
