Alle anderen Everyone else( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in German and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chris and Gitti are a mismatched young German couple involved in a tense, dynamic relationship. He's a tall, pasty, good-looking, charming but distant guy with a weak chin and a worried expression; she's small and robust, a blunt, childlike, free-spirited, boisterous bundle of nervous energy. They are a couple struggling for definition against bourgeois norms, and the film examines their relationship in the petri dish of a vacation at his parents' haute-bourgeois, kitsch-stuffed Sardinian villa. Alternately loving and bickering with each other--and apparently thinking this makes them unique--their relationship is cemented with invented private riffs on a shared sense of humor. An encounter with a former schoolmate of Chris's and his wife prompts changes that may be good, or may spell out the warning in the writing on the wall

Jerichow] by Christian Petzold( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in German and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The eternal triangle: a rich guy; his bored, beautiful, blond wife; and a rugged stranger, down on his luck and ready for action. What more do you need? In this case, to know that the rich guy is a Turk who is still, despite having spent virtually his entire life in Germany, a permanent outsider. That the hot blond wife has a colorful past and owes large debts (which hubby now holds over her head). That the rugged stranger is a former soldier who received a dishonorable discharge after serving in Afghanistan, living in his dead mother's house. Jerichow is a nondescript spot in the former East Germany, where capitalism still has a somewhat primitive, half-criminal feel. The film conveys a sense of desperation and defeat, and highlights that what can happen at the crossroads of lust, loneliness, and materialism
