After her liberation from the Nazi concentration camps, a disfigured woman (Nina Hoss) is given facial reconstruction. Her obsession to reunite with her former husband is complicated by her new look and his greed. This import by Christian Petzold (“Barbara”) has the deliberate pacing that’s common with European films, plus the somewhat dispassionate solemnity that’s stereotypically German. Still, the performances are absorbing (esp. Hoss), the story is compelling and the filmmaking is solid. (Criterion Cinema only)
