Barbara 2012

Friday, January 25 - Thursday, February 7, 2013

East Germany, 1980. Barbara Wolff is a young doctor who has applied for an exit visa from the GDR and, as punishment, has been transferred from her prestigious post in Berlin to a small pediatric hospital in the country. She must weigh her absolute dedication to her patients against a potential escape to the West, and her newfound attraction to a doctor in whom she sees a kindred spirit. Read more about BARBARA in Film Notes.

"BARBARA is a film about the old Germany from one of the best directors working in the new: Christian Petzold. For more than a decade Mr. Petzold has been making his mark on the international cinema scene with smart, tense films that resemble psychological thrillers, but are distinguished by their strange story turns, moral thorns, visual beauty and filmmaking intelligence." (Manohla Dargis, The New York Times)

“It’s one terrific film, as smart, thoughtful and emotionally involving as just about anything that’s out there.” (Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times)

“A transfixing Cold War thriller.” (Melissa Anderson, Village Voice)
