Rosenstrasse Review


Good
In the opening scenes of Rosenstrasse, a Jewish woman named Ruth (Jutta Lampe) living in contemporary New York is mourning the loss of her husband by means of strict Jewish customs.

Circle Of Deceit Review


Excellent
It takes a virtuoso to set a love story in war-torn Beirut, but if anyone is up to the task it's going to be Volker Schlöndorff, the master behind The Tin Drum and other fine fare. With Bruno Ganz and Fassbinder regular Hanna Schygulla running the show, an even wider safety net is laid out -- Schlöndorff's story is emotional and earnest, beautifully composed, and full of thought: both about the horrors of modern warfare and the horrors of love.
