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.
Lola rennt (action thriller)
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....
