@ Squeaky Wheel
General $7 | $5 for Squeaky Wheel Members
Fate brings a trio together in Jerichow (2008), a small town in eastern Germany plagued by a population exodus and unemployment. An ex-soldier’s encounter with a couple of Turkish descent – the owner of a chain of snack bars and his enigmatic wife – pushes all three over the edge. A sexy, tightly constructed remake of The Postman Rings Twice (1946).
A taut, German-made thriller, Jerichow adds a bit of European xenophobia to the pulp traditions of passion and betrayal. – Stephen Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
