Dir. Christian Petzold, Germany France, 2019, 101 min
Franz Rogowski stars as Georg, a German in Paris during an increasingly tense and violent occupation. The book the film is based on was released in 1944 and set in 1942, so the story at that time was about the Nazis, but Christian Petzold (director of ‘Phoenix’ and ‘Barbara’) boldly chooses to update the story to an alternative modern time without really clarifying the source of the threat.
Paris is being sealed off, but Georg must first deliver two letters for a friend. However when he gets to the home of the addressee – a writer, he finds him dead – by suicide. Before long, Georg is dodging shock troops in a heart-thumping chase and entering a Kafkaesque world where the streets are filled with jackboots and terror.
