German Movies

I would appreciate some recommendations for some awesome, German cinema. I particularly like psychological thrillers or crime/mystery films but I can venture outside of those genres.

Danke

Watch DARK on Netflix. Es ist sehr interessant

The German 'Stranger things' really good!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/hochimnorden

Lola rennt (action thriller)

Männerpension (comedy)

Wer früher stirbt ist länger tot (comedy)

Goodbye Lenin (tragicomedy)

Das Parfum (psychological thriller)

Krabat (drama / fantasy)

Das Leben der Anderen (drama / thriller)

Pretty good are also the "Tatort" TV films , in particular those situated in Münster with Thiel & Boerne (crime)

I really liked "Wer früher stirbt ist länger tot", but it might be for advanced learners due to the accent. Also in Tatort Münster, many will loose at least the parts of certain characters ("Vaddern!"). On the other hand, can be an important experience for people who really plan to go to Germany....

Agree regarding the strong Bavarian accent that is used in "Wer früher stirbt, ist länger tot"

Watching the Tatort Münster should be ok. German subtitles are available, so intermediate level German learners should be able to follow the plot.

Der Eisbär, Das Leben der Anderen, Lola rennt .....

Das Boot, Das Experiment, Bang Boom Bang, Knockin' On Heaven's Door....

Anatomie, Das finstere Tal, Der Medicus, Das Parfum,

ich liebe besonders eine alte serie of Films by Edgar Reitz


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/madeleinemahin

Der Himmel uber Berlin is also great, directed by Wim Wenders (watch the original one, not the American remake 'Wings of Desire'). It triggers a lot of existential feelings.

There is also a very nice movie, Soul Kitchen, a comedy film

M Eine Stadt sucht einen Mörder, a classic from 1931 (is on Youtube). Slow and clear dialogue, although some of it with strong Berlin accent.

It's not out on DVD yet in Germany, but "The Greatest Showman" is a movie I really liked.

"Der Untergang", ganzer Film Deutsch mit Englischen Untertitel in Youtube! Auch: "der Junge Marx", "LOU ANDREAS-SALOME" (wenn du diese mit Englischen Untertitel findest, melde mir auch mal)

According to Deutsch Aktuell 1, Die Blechtrommel is a German comedy that has had a lot of success.

Die Blechtrommel is a very famous German film (among others it won an Oscar) and definitely worth watching. It is not a comedy but a drama.
