Barbara


Director - Christian Petzold, 108 Minutes - Germany 2012
 
Barbara is a Berlin doctor banished to a country medical clinic for applying for an exit visa. Deeply unhappy with her reassignment and fearful of her co-workers as possible Stasi informants, she stays aloof, especially from the good natured clinic head. Instead, she snatches moments with her lover as she secretly prepares to defect one day.
