As part of Lonely Ghosts: The Early Films of Christian Petzold
“An enigmatic thriller. The kind of movie that tantalizes the mind.” —Stephen Holden, The New York Times
“Narrowly escaping her volatile ex-husband, Yella (Nina Hoss) flees her small hometown in former East Germany for a new life in the West. She finds a promising job with Philipp, a handsome business executive with whom an unlikely romance soon blossoms. But just as Yella seems poised to realize her dreams, she finds herself haunted by buried truths that threaten to destroy her newfound happiness. Christian Petzold’s Yella is a stylish and deliciously suspenseful mystery.” (Cinema Guild)
