Barbara (dir. Christian Petzold, 2012)
Winner of the Silver Bear at the Berlin International Film Festival 2012, this drama of human and political dilemmas follows Barbara, a doctor working at the prestigious Charité hospital in the East Germany of 1980, as she is banished to a hospital in the provinces as a punishment for an application to emigrate to the west. There, while harassed by Stasi official Schütz and secretly planning her escape, Barbara appears also to captivate an idealistic and handsome colleague. Is he falling in love with her? Is he another Stasi spy? Or both?
