The Synopsis for Phoenix (2014) 1080p

In the aftermath of WWII, Nelly, a Jewish survivor of the Auschwitz concentration camp, horribly disfigured from a bullet wound in her face, undergoes a series of facial reconstruction surgeries and decides to find her husband Johnny who works at the Phoenix club in Berlin. Undoubtedly, Nelly is stunning, yet, her new self is beyond recognition, so Johnny, the man who may have betrayed her to the Nazis, will never imagine that the woman in front of him who bears an uncomfortable and unsettling resemblance to his late wife, is indeed her. Without delay, and with the intention to collect the deceased's inheritance, Nelly will go along with Johnny's plot and she will impersonate the dead woman, giving the performance of a lifetime before friends and relatives in a complex game of deceit, duplicity, and ultimately, seduction. In the end, during this masquerade, as the fragile and broken Nelly tries to find out whether Johnny betrayed her or not, she will have to dig deep into her wounded ...

Phoenix - A Great Metaphor.Reviewed byyk-sampVote: 9/10

Phoenix is a German drama set in the post war Berlin. The plot revolves around Nelly(Nina Hoss), who had been disfigured and underwent surgery, trying to reunite with her husband, Johnny(Ronald Zehrfeld), after being liberated from a concentration camp. Against her friend's advice, Lene(Nina Kunzendorf), who wants to take her to Palestine to keep her safe, Nelly keeps searching for Johnny until she finally finds him. At first, he doesn't recognize his lost wife, thinking that she's dead, and asks for Nelly's help to impersonate her in order to get money from the insurance company. Blinded by love, Nelly accepts Johnny's offer just so she could be able to spend more time with her husband.

While the plot may not seem very interesting, 'Phoenix' more than succeeded in accomplishing exactly what it wanted to accomplish. Even though some story elements and twists may not seem very plausible, the director himself, Christian Petzold, affirmed that the script should not be taken literally all the way. Phoenix is more about the little things such as the subtle emotions given by the actors, especially from Nina Hoss who pulls off one of the best female performances of the year.

The most impressive thing about 'Phoenix' is its obsession with the theme of re-birth, which is also suggested by the title. Nelly reunites with Johnny in front of a club called 'Phoenix', but this doesn't only suggest the re-birth of their relationship, but also Nelly's re- birth as a new person after being surgically reconstructed and after accepting to be Johnny's not-so-fake wife. Another theme employed by the movie is that of lying to yourself instead of accepting the truth. Nelly accepts being Johnny's fake wife, against her friend's advice, so she could be with him, refusing to admit that he had forgotten her, and Johnny refuses to realize that the woman is actually his concentration camp surviving wife because he doesn't want to believe that his wife is still alive.

By the last minutes of the movie, all of the events unfold along with a breath-taking sequence of Nelly performing Tony Bennett's 'Speak Low'; a sequence that leaves not only the audience, but also the other characters completely speechless.

It's also worth noticing that the whole concentration camp survivor status Nelly has is used only as a plot device which helps the movie go on, as opposed to a way of guilting the audience to feel sorry for the character.

Aside from the small technical details which shouldn't bother anyone who can realize why they were actually in the movie, 'Phoenix' is a masterfully crafted film with a great soundtrack, which really sets the mood for every scene, great performances, especially from Nina Hoss and above all, a literally stunning ending which is open to interpretation and which may very well be the best movie ending of the past few years.

That being said, I think it's safe to say that 'Phoenix' may be one of the best movies of this year and should be checked out by everyone.

Different AshesReviewed byA.W RichmondVote: 7/10

Hubert Monteilhet's novel has been filmed three times I saw two of them. The 1960's Return From The Ashes and this one, Phoenix (2014) - the one I haven't seen is a TV version from the 1980's Le retour d'Elisabeth Wolff, but now I really want to see it. Phoenix is a moody, painful journey to a rebirth. Nina Hoss is lovely as the survivor, Ronald Zehofeld plays the husband, object of her obsession. He's an interesting actor, a mix between Benicio del Toro and the young Orson Welles. Their scenes together have a realistic, tangible suspense. But Christian Petzold, the director of Jerichow (2008), gives the whole film a severe pace and tone, the 1964 version has a sharp, sophisticated script by Julius J Epstein with titles like Casablanca to his credit and J Lee Thompson at the helm, Thompson directed films like The Guns Of Navarone, Cape Fear and What A Way To Go. So his version, Return From The Ashes, is a whole other experience, at time it's even funny. With a superlative international cast cast, Maximilian Schell, Ingrid Thulin and Samantha Eggar - So one can see both films as it they weren't even related.

Simple but compelling and beautifully made.Reviewed byaaskillz69Vote: 7/10

"Do you recognize me?" -Nelly

Lisbon & Estoril Film Festival #6

Phoenix has been one film that has been going through the fall film festival circuit (it premiered at Toronto and it has been all over the place around Europe), and even though it has gotten fantastic reviews and it was directed by already established director Christian Petzold, the film has received much attention. So I was thrilled when I saw that this film was in the line-up for the festival, I knew little or nothing about it, I hadn't seen any trailers and it seemed as though this one could be the festival's revelation. Still I went in just hoping to find a decent picture.

Phoenix is Directed by Christian Petzold and it stars Nina Hoss, Ronald Zehrfeld, Nina Kunzendorf, Uwe Preuss, Michael Maertens and Valerie Koch.

The war has ended and the survivors are returning home. Are they really lucky that they survived? A woman comes back home, to Berlin, with a disfigured face and a shattered mind. Nelly is going to have her face reconstructed, the doctors ask her what face she wants, maybe of a film start, but Nelly just wants her face back. Nelly just wanted everything to be as it was before the war, she wants her life, her husband, she wants to sing in the coir again, she wants to be able to live one more time. She searches for what's lost, her husband?Johnny. Johnny who might have betrayed Nelly and sent her to a concentration camp. She ultimately finds Johnny alive, working at a cabaret in Berlin. He doesn't recognize her and her heart is broken. But he sees that her new face is similar to his wife's face and he tells the stranger (Nelly, is own wife) that they could both get a lot of money by pretending that she was his wife. Nelly's healing face and broken spirit accept the challenge of impersonating herself, or at least what she once were. Johnny gives her lessons and through these lessons Nelly hopes to become what she wants was, through these lessons she hopes to win his husband back.

Only a few weeks ago Fury was released, a tired, familiar World War II picture with very little to say. An America *beep* Yeah kind of picture with a lot of violence, where the Germans have the depth of the Nazis in Dead Snow and where every single character in that tank was a mere cliché. If you are going to make a World War II picture at least have some respect for your own subject. The fact that this one was a World War II picture made me a little scared, this sub-genre is way too iterant as it seems as though they make these pictures for the explosions. Really? Should you turn such an important subject into a Michael Bay depthless picture? This one though, fortunately, it is not Fury. It pays respect to its subject and it actually has something to say.

Looking back Phoenix is actually an incredibly simple film, that doesn't even take many risks when it comes to narrative. It is simple but undeniably effective. The film is built up quite slowly and to say the truth it never takes many risky, unpredictable paths as what happens is pretty much expected. Still I found the picture to be incredibly compelling on an emotional level. Much of that is due to the fantastic acting by both Nina Hoss and Ronald Zehrfeld and because of Christian Petzold approach. An approach that might seem reserved, cold, too simple to some but I found it to be rich and absorbing. The film is like a big countdown, a crescendo, to a huge emotional climax that's simple and expected and still it struck me quite hard.

Nina Hoss continues to be the target of Christian Petzold's attention and she continues to show why she's worthy of his attention and of the attention of many others. She has already been this year in Anton Corbijn's fantastic A Most Wanted Man delivering a strong performance. I really hope to see more from her in the future because she's got some talent. She carries this picture, she doesn't only give the face to the character, she becomes the character, she shine.

I can see many being upset with the fact that the film doesn't make many bold moves and it ultimately takes the path that you expected it to take. Still it is beautifully constructed and crafted, the acting is excellent (especially from Nina Hoss, who was supposed to be present but didn't make it), it's emotionally complex and rich and it ultimately delivers the goods with a strong climax that will likely wreck you.
