January’s installment features films that have become classics, including Doris Dörrie’s Men (1985), Helke Sander’s Redupers—The All-Around Reduced Personality (1978), Werner Schroeter’s The Rose King (1986), Volker Schlöndorff’s Circle of Deceit (1981), and Wim Wenders’s Wrong Move (1975). Andreas Dresen, Roland Suso Richter, and Tom Tykwer are represented by recent works: Grill Point (2002), A Handful of Grass (1999), and Wintersleepers (1997), respectively.
