Director: Adolf Winkelmann

Cast: Gudrun Landgrebe, Nathaliel Parker Country of origin UK-Germany, 1994

 A psychological thriller about the troubled life of an English agent and assassin, who is considered to be officially dead. He has the perfect alibi to act undisturbed and without demur for his own interests. His relationship with two women (mother and daughter) accentuates the ruthlessness of his character. A typical Winkelmann film where the epic and subversive elements prevail.

Country of origin Germany, 1993

A fiction story which takes place in an undetermined time. A prisoner escapes. He is transported by train to a station that lies somewhere between life and death. He falls in love with a girl, who in her real life is in a coma. The dreamy mood of the script and its transcendental quality are distinctive traits of Matsutani’s work.

Country of origin Germany, 1991

Retro drama. The real love story of a flying instructor and his female student who lived in Chile during the 1930s. The impressive professional advancement of the student inflates her husband’s jealousy, who leads her by radio into a storm and to her subsequent death. A film of poetic images, hidden psychological dimensions and an unconventional director’s approach from Patramanis.
