A thriller sub-genre has carved out a popular niche in German cinema: gangster films by critically acclaimed filmmakers with star actors often of immigrant or metissage descent. Some tell hard-hitting street crime stories, others are tender explorations of inner-city life, love, and modern masculinity. All introduce us to complex characters that appeal well beyond their own worlds.
GOETHE FILMS brings the best of German film to Toronto audiences. See goethe.de for more details.
Location - TIFF Bell Lightbox
