2006. Germany. Directed by Birgit Moeller. Screenplay by Moeller, Ruth Rehmet, Ilja Haller, Milena Balsch, Elke Sudmann. With Agata Buzek, David Striesow. Moeller's debut feature, a recent Best Feature Film winner at the Hamptons Intl Film Festival, concerns a young fashion model living in one of Berlin's luxury hotels who suddenly finds herself in an unsettling situation. An assured, riveting, and ultimately positive film about a sudden and dramatic turn for the worse, Valerie sees beyond the glamour of international catwalks and into the terror of being a private person in a public arena. In German; English subtitles. 85 min.
