German writer-director Christian Petzold (TRANSIT, PHOENIX) makes films that are unusual and remarkable for how poetically they remake the world as we know it, with images that reframe history and our individual place within it. This latest film, a fantastical romance, peels back the layers of Berlin’s past through the eyes of its main character, an urban historian undone by a bad breakup.
