Some of the be.st german movies his secret obsession deutsch
There have been a multitude of great films listed by others on here and I agree with many of the choices youll notice many of the same titles appearing on everyones list… I thought Id edit my initial list to add more detail and also to perhaps include some films Ive seen that are not on here yet This is in no particular order Gegen die Wand Head On this is arguably one of the most acclaimed German films of all time. Directed by Fatih Akin and the breakout film of Game of Thrones TV series Shae Sibel Keki.lli it is the riveting tale of two German born Turks who meet each other in hospital after attempting to commit suicide. It is dark and funny and utterly brilliant. Id recommend everything Fatih Akin has done. Die Welle The Wave based on a true event it tells the story of a high school teacher who decides to teach a class on the dangers of fascism in a unique way. Der Leben das Anderen The Lives of Others Oscar winning meisterwerk which is possibly the be film on this list, it tells the story of an officer of the Stasi sent on a mission to spy on an artist who is on the DDR regimes watchlist and how this encounter changes him. The depiction of the Stasi and life in the DDR is riveting and it truly deserves its fame. Der Untergang Downfall a film about the last days of Hitler and his clost associates in Hitlers infamous bunker. Lola rennt Run Lola Run a dark comedy about a young girl who has 20 minutes to raise a large amount of mon. ey to save her boyfriend it is told in a thrilling and innovative style. Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo Christiane F./We Children of Zoo Station Possibly my personal favourite on this list, it is a harrowing depiction of the true story of a young teenage girls descent into heroe abuse and related prostitution in late 70s/early 80s Wt Berlin. The autobiography by Christiane Felscherinow became a bese.ller and was turned into this stunning and terrifying movie which is easily the be movie on dru.g addiction Ive ever seen and I cannot think of a better way to prevent someone from thinking of doing hard dru than showing this masterpiece. Filmed on location at Berlins Zoologischer Garten S Bahn station train station, which at that time was a hangout for druies, it features mostly amateur actors and, in addition to being a wonderful cautionary tale about dru.g abuse, a biopic, it is also a great historical document of the Berlin of that time and its dru.g and music scene David Bowie musician, actor Bowie features prominently on the soundtrack. Bedways some friends decide to make a movie about s.ex and desire. This meticulous film features great performances from its leads. Wings of Desire Die Himmel uber Berlin — About angels over Berlin this is too famous! Mentioned already by everyone it is Wim Wenders masterpiece. Wir Sind die Nacht We are the Night a very clever and original take on the vampire genre, this is about a trio of female vampires who haunt Berlins night. Great fun. Wild 2016 a recent German drama about a woman whose life changes in dramatic and horrific ways when she becomes obsessed by a wolf she sees in a wilderness on the outskirts of a town. A stunning take on the werewolf genre which is unique and has a documentary feel with some great cinematography. Das wilde Leben My Wild Life/Eight Miles High this film was the first German movie I watched in German whilst in Germany and it is on this list for that reason but also because it is actually very entertaining road movie. It is a biopic of the 1960s groupie and model Uschi Obermaier and depicts her rise and fall from a pretty but frustrated girl in a small co.nservative neighbourhood of Munich, via a kommune in Berlin, to her rise as one of the first models of the Swinging Sixties and her subsequent party life involving jet setting and dru and affairs with Jagger, Hendrix and others but the heart of the movie is her tragic love affair with a German, Dieter Lockhorn ,and their 6 year road trip which goes all the way to the Subco.ntinent in a dilapidated, beat up van. Feuchgebiete Wetlands 2013 a very funny comedy which aims to gross out its veiwers, it is based on the autobiographical novel of the same name by Charlotte Roche, it follows a young lady who has a fascination with all of her bodily fluids. It is actually very funny and a good film although the scene of ordering a pizza with semen as a topping might be too much for some! This being a German film and not Hollywood, there is no squeamishness in actually depicting the scene in a slow motion as the topping is produced! Not for the easily offended! Sophie Scholl the true story of the schoolgirl who led resistance to the rise of Nazism by producing leaflets against fascism, this is a heart breaking film about her heroism. One of the least known of Nazi themed movies. Die Fremde 2009
