    The second of Petzold’s movies I’ve watched and I’m really enjoying his style. This is another understated, very human drama with great performances and simmering tension. The camerawork and scene setting really make the emotions land, even if I felt like they needed a bit more backstory to why Thomas and Nina went to such lengths to be together. But the confinement everyone feels is almost palpable.

    I saw a blurb about how he uses cars throughout his movies as an analogue to his characters or the stories, and that is an almost on-the-nose feature of this movie (since it’s so much about driving around), but it’s really so subtle. Just people in cars, but how that brings them together or separates them is always a question being answered, or maybe a dynamic being demonstrated. Really effective storytelling.
