German Titles P-R

Paradise. Faith
"For Anna Maria, a single woman in her fifties, paradise lies with Jesus. She devotes her summer vacation to doing missionary work, so that Austria may be brought back to the path of virtue. On her daily pilgrimage through Vienna, she goes from door to door, carrying a foot-high statue of the Virgin Mary. When her husband, an Egyptian Muslim confined to a wheelchair, comes home after years of absence, her life is turned upside down."

The Passenger
"Sexual and moral boundaries are put to the test when a handsome stranger begins to infiltrate the lives of two artists. While searching for a condo in Berlin for his father, Nick meets Philipp, a photographer and a gorgeous actress named Lilli. There is instant chemistry and both are easily seduced by Nick's charms.

Paths
"Andreas and Martin have shared all the ups and downs of life, and now that their son has matured and moved out on his own, they have more free time to focus on themselves again. But when they are left alone with only themselves, will the spark still be there?"

Phantom Pain
"A passionate cyclist and urban slacker sees his life change in an instant when he loses his left leg. But through love, willpower, and introspection, he overcomes the challenge."

Phoenix
"Set in a rubble-strewn Berlin in 1945, is like no other film about post-World War II Jewish identity. After surviving Auschwitz, a former cabaret performer, her face disfigured and reconstructed, returns to her war-ravaged hometown to seek out the gentile husband who may or may not have betrayed her to the Nazis. Without recognizing her, he enlists her to play his wife in a bizarre hall-of-shattered-mirrors story that's as richly metaphorical as it is preposterously engrossing."

Reformation
"A stunning drama that boldly captures Martin Luther's story shortly before he published his 95 theses in 1517 until the bloody end of the Peasants' War in 1525. It tells the story of the key figures in Luther's world who were critical to his ambitions to reform the church and whose actions directly shaped the world in which people know and live today."

Requiem

Run Lola Run
"A thrilling post-MTV, roller-coaster ride about two star-crossed lovers who have only minutes to change the course of their lives.
