Phoenix

Published: Jan 19, 2016

Guided by the superb sixth-time film pairing of director Christian Petzold and leading lady Nina Hoss, audiences will be drawn into Phoenix, on Tuesday, February 9 at 7 p.m., part of the 2015-2016 Foreign Film Series at Aventura Arts & Cultural Center.  A broody post-World War II melodrama set in Berlin, the film centers on Jewish singer Nelly Lutz (Hoss), who survives a Nazi concentration camp with her face disfigured from a gunshot wound and sets out to find her musician husband Johnny – whom she thinks betrayed her to save his own life. Not knowing she is Nelly when he meets her, Johnny sees a resemblance to his presumed-dead wife and hatches a plot to use her to get to Nelly’s family inheritance.
