Phoenix

Hitchcock would be proud.

This German mystery arrived long after the Master of Suspense passed, but it pays beautiful tribute to films like Vertigo.

Following WWII, we track a singer as she returns to Berlin after surviving a savage bullet wound at Auschwitz.

The injury required extensive reconstruction surgery, leaving her identity in question.

Which sets up an uneasy reunion with her husband, who may have betrayed her to the Nazis.

While he doesn’t know he’s speaking to his (presumed dead) wife, he thinks she looks enough like her to help him collect a major inheritance.

Cue the emotional fallout.
