Phoenix by Christian Petzold( Visual )

8 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in German and held by 667 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in a rubble-strewn Berlin in 1945, is like no other film about post-World War II Jewish identity. After surviving Auschwitz, a former cabaret performer, her face disfigured and reconstructed, returns to her war-ravaged hometown to seek out the gentile husband who may or may not have betrayed her to the Nazis. Without recognizing her, he enlists her to play his wife in a bizarre hall-of-shattered-mirrors story that's as richly metaphorical as it is preposterously engrossing

Der Baader Meinhof Komplex by Uli Edel( Visual )

2 editions published in 2008 in German and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Germany in the 1970s: Murderous bomb attacks, the threat of terrorism and the fear of the enemy inside are rocking the very foundations of the yet fragile German democracy. The radicalised children of the Nazi generation lead by Andreas Baader, Ulrike Meinhof and Gudrun Ensslin are fighting a violent war against what they perceive as the new face of fascism: American imperialism supported by the German establishment, many of whom have a Nazi past. Their aim is to create a more human society but by employing inhuman means they not only spread terror and bloodshed, they also lose their own humanity. The man who understands them is also their hunter: the head of the German police force Horst Herold. And while he succeeds in his relentless pursuit of the young terrorists, he knows he's only dealing with the tip of the iceberg."--Constantin Film

"Zur großen Geburtstagsfeier der Mutter kommt Anne in ihr Heimatdorf zurück. Ihre beiden Schwestern leben noch immer dort: Die ältere Schwester Iris wohnt mit der Mutter unter einem Dach, die jüngste Schwester Marianne lebt mit ihrer eigenen kleinen Familie ganz in der Nähe. Anne, die Rebellin und Abenteurerin unter den Dreien, mischt die Festvorbereitungen kräftig auf: Sie verliebt sich in den Mann von Marianne und überlässt Iris die gesamte Verantwortung für die anstehende Feier. So werden die Vorbereitungen für das Fest permanent durch kleine und große Katastrophen unterbrochen. Die absurde Komik wie auch Tragik des Lebens lassen die Geburtstagsfeier ganz anders verlaufen als geplant - die Ereignisse überschlagen sich und die drei Schwestern müssen noch mal ganz von vorn anfangen [...]" [tvinfo.de]
