5 German films

We were talking about films today, which led to a talk about German films. Well not really a talk, but really just me saying how great contemporary German cinema is. And it is - there have been some excellent German films in recent times. Here are five you should see immediately. Schnell!

The Baader Meinhof Complex
The Edukators
Sophie Scholl - the final days
Lives of Others
Run Lola Run

I don't suppose you have a top 5 German film list? To be honest either did I until 3 minutes ago...I couldn't come up with a top 5 of all time favourite films, so broke it down into my favourite German ones.


  1. I thought that one where the Mum woke up from a coma and her kids tried to hide the fall of the wall from her was kinda cute. Don't remember the name.

  2. I checked it is - yes that is a cute film! And cute actor Daniel something something

  3. White Ribbon is another worth seeing. DM
