Barbara

This looks very thought provoking. While the cold war is over, totalitarianism isn't, so the subject is very relevant. We will meet at 6 in the Crystal Cafe and then get seated at 6:50. If people are up for it, we can go to Wasabi or check out the new bar Rodin after, both within walking distance of the DIA, arguably even in February.

Synopsis:

Set during the Cold War era of 1980, this tense and vibrantly intelligent new thriller from Germany’s prolific Christian Petzold is the story of a physician (Nina Hoss of Jerichow) who is exiled from East Berlin to a small rural town as punishment for applying for an exit visa from the German Democratic Republic. Plotting in secret to flee to Denmark with her boyfriend, Barbara does her best to manage a professional – though icy – persona in the presence of her colleagues, while revealing the true depths of her deep and compassionate true self only to her patients. Totally absorbing and richly satisfying, Barbara is that rare work of suspense that pins us to the edge of our seats while at the same time revealing the human side of telling – and withholding – the truth. Best Director Prize, 2012 Berlin Film Festival. In German with English subtitles. (105 min.)

    Darn I didn't think the museum closed so early. So Rather than wait two hours I left. Hope it's good I will try again.

      Hello Detroit Indi meetup. My friends and I showed up and did not see anyone at the DFT. So I didn't see anyone. Was no one there? Also, when you do show up in the future, can the organizer have a meetup sign on the table? A balloon? Something to signal that you are the Det Indie meetup group? Thank you, Andrea

    I don't know, but it's usually not sold out except for the Oscar shorts or if it's a big event. I plan to buy tickets at the door myself.
