  • A slow-burning Cold War drama that will reward patient viewers with its ultimate emotional payoff. show more

  • Petzold raises questions of honor and builds the romance with an absolutely rigorous lack of sentiment, moving Barbara to a sweeping finish as emotionally satisfying as any this year. show more

  • 90

    It's a movie that works its magic slowly, and on multiple levels; it's a historical drama, a mystery and a love story. And Hoss' performance is simply one of the finest of the year. show more
