HANNAH ARENDT

DIRECTOR: Margarethe von Trotta - GERMANY

Von Trotta’s film is an intelligent and powerful dramatization of the life of the philosopher and writer Hannah Arendt, whose The Origins of Totalitarianism (1951) made her famous in philosophical circles before her controversial chronicle in The New Yorker of Nazi Adolf Eichmann’s 1961 trial for war crimes shot her to broader international celebrity. Focusing on the Eichmann era, Barbara Sukowa perfectly embodies the academic Arendt, who observes that it is the ordinariness of Eichmann (“He looks like a nobody”) that leads her to fashion her most startling concept—the “banality of evil”—while her reporting on collaborating German Jews causes a...

HAPPY PEOPLE: A YEAR IN THE TAIGA

DIRECTOR: Dmitry Vasyukov, Werner Herzog - GERMANY

“Paradise on earth? Through writer and narrator Werner Herzog’s lens, that is what Bakhtia, a village on the river Yenisei in Russia’s far north might seem like in this breathtaking, rich, and frequently funny documentary. He and first-time director Vasyukov capture the local people—nearly always in companionship with their dogs—making their own tools, trapping sable, felling trees to build boats, fishing, harvesting food, and holding ceremonies for the turning of the seasons. Sharing their perspectives on greed, war, and mortality, as Herzog notes: They live off the land and are self-reliant, truly free. … No rules, no taxes, no government,...

A HIJACKING

DIRECTOR: Tobias Lindholm - DENMARK

A gripping suspense drama focusing on negotiation tactics and complex human psychology, A Hijacking chronicles the nightmare endured by the small crew of a Danish cargo ship when Somali pirates suddenly take them hostage in the Indian Ocean. Back in the shipping company’s office in Copenhagen, the demand for a $15 million ransom sets in motion tense negotiations, which, against the advice of professional hostage negotiators, the macho (and frugal) president decides he will handle himself. Plunging the company, the crew and their families, and the pirates into an extended battle of wills, we watch as the fear and tension...

THE HUNT

DIRECTOR: Thomas Vinterberg - DENMARK

Vinterberg’s devastating drama follows an upstanding member of a small, close-knit Danish community charged with an unthinkable crime. Lucas (Mads Mikkelsen) is a kindergarten aide beloved by students and parents alike, until a girl in his class accuses him of inappropriately touching her. No sooner is the charge leveled than Lucas is deemed guilty in the public eye and then ostracized—indeed, hunted—by his former friends and neighbors. Knowing that Lucas is indeed innocent adds a chilling layer of horror to an already breathless tale. A provocative, all-too-believable study in mob mentality and the unfailing belief of adults in the innocence...
