  • The City Below

    2010. Germany. Directed by Christoph Hochhäusler. With Robert Hunger-Bühler, Mark Waschke, Nicolette Krebitz. As the head of a bank, a king in a glass tower overlooking Frankfurt’s financial district, Roland is used to having his way. A moment of attraction with Svenja, a woman he encounters at an art gallery, soon escalates from flirtation to the two strangers, both married, finding themselves in a hotel room. Svenja is taken by the man, but she resists consummating the affair—all the while unaware that her husband works under Roland. Roland, however, manipulates the couple’s life to get what he wants. In German; English subtitles. 105 min.
