See this film program: "The Berlin School Now" at the HFA

The City Below (2010)

Every four decades or so, some German filmmakers stir themselves into a frenzy of creative energy and revitalize world cinema. Could this be happening with Christoph Hochhäusler and Isabelle Stever, who are showcased in the Harvard Film Archive weekend program "The Berlin School Now"? Stever's Gisela (2005; May 13 @ 7 pm) looks at how the stolid existence of a suburban mom is disrupted, or maybe not, when a knucklehead from her school days shows up. Hochhäusler takes on the upper classes with The City Below (2010; May 14 @ 7 pm, with the director present), in which a love triangle among financiers unfolds with cold ruthlessness. The HFA is at 24 Quincy St, Cambridge | Friday, May 13-Monday, May 15 | $9; $7 students, seniors | 617.495.4700 or
