In East Germany in 1980, Barbara Wolff is a young doctor who has applied for an exit visa from the GDR and, as punishment, has been transferred from her prestigious post in Berlin to a small pediatric hospital in the country. She must weigh her absolute dedication to her patients against a potential escape to the West, and her newly found attraction to a doctor in whom she sees a kindred spirit.

Metacritic Score

  • 80

    The Hollywood Reporter

    A slow-burning Cold War drama that will reward patient viewers with its ultimate emotional payoff.

  • 80

    Empire

    Tough and tender, it's the best Iron Curtain drama since "The Lives Of Others."

  • 75

    Slant Magazine

    Most compelling in Christian Petzold's latest is the way the filmmaker adeptly conducts his tides of Cold War paranoia.
