Toronto 2014: 'Phoenix' review

13 September 2014 9:45 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆In Hiroshi Teshigahara's mysterious and metaphysical The Face of Another (1966), notions of identity both personal and national are explored through the story of man whose face is irrevocably scarred in a terrible accident. The indelible image of his bandaged head is brought to mind in the opening reel of Christian Petzold's latest offering, another interested in the rebirth of nation after the Second World War, his Toronto Film Festival entry Phoenix (2014). Built around a devastated and devastating central performance by the director's muse Nina Hoss - who gained rave reviews for his last feature, Barbara (2012) - Petzold's Phoenix is a high-concept premise executed as a heart-wrenching character piece.
