Germany (2007) Dir: Christian Petzold. A young businesswoman gets in touch with her taste for cutthroat corporate tactics. Yella proves to be an exceptionally shrewd boardroom operator, though her relationship with her respectful new colleague is shot through with suspicion and sexual tension. An edgy, intellectual, and enigmatic thriller that begins as a harrowing tale of a young woman stalked by her deranged ex-husband, but then quickly turns into an investigation of the murkier depths of capitalism. German with English subtitles. Unrated. 89 mins.
