German Titles N-O

Nackt unter Wölfen  = Naked Among Wolves
"The first German film devoted to life and death in a concentration camp tells the story of organized resistance by political prisoners in the Buchenwald concentration camp. When one of the prisoners smuggles a child into a camp, the men are faced with the question of how many lives may be endangered in order to save the life of the child. Based on a true story."

Der neunte Tag = The Ninth Day
"Noted German director Volker Schlondorff's (The Tin Drum) highly compelling The Ninth Day provides a unique examination of historical events that took place during the Holocaust."

The Niklashausen Journey
"Can a small group of people start a proletarian revolution, asks the 'Black Monk' in a leather jacket. The medieval shepherd, Hans Boehm, claims to have been called by the Virgin Mary to create a revolt against the church and the landowners. The 'Black Monk' suggests that he would have more success if he dressed up Johanna and had her appear as the Virgin Mary."

Nordwand
"An adventure drama, based on a true story, about a competition to climb the most dangerous rock face in the Alps, the north face of the Eiger. Set in 1936, Nazi propaganda urges German alpinists to conquer the mountain, and two reluctant young climbers, Toni and Andi, attempt a daring ascent, closely followed by two Austrian climbers. All goes well at first, but then the climbers lose their advantage over the mountain and the race against time and forces of nature begins."

Oberst Redl = Colonel Redl
"In the early part of the 20th century, Alfred Redl ruthlessly rises from his peasant background to become a high-ranking member of the Imperial Austrian military. But when Redl is sent to spy on the Russian Empire, his espionage is compromised by his secret double life as a homosexual. As the world perches on the brink of war, Redl finds himself trapped in a web of deception where honor, grandeur and greed can only be betrayed by one final shocking act of fate."

Of Girls and Horses
"A rebellious teen is sent away to a horse farm by her mother."
