Phoenix (M) Nina Hoss is mag­nif­i­cent in this ex­cel­lent Ger­man re­make of the 1965 Bri­tish film Re­turn from the Ashes. The drama, di­rected by Chris­tian Pet­zold, is set im­me­di­ately af­ter World War II and Hoss plays a con­cen­tra­tion camp sur­vivor whose face has been hor­ri­bly dam­aged; af­ter re­con­struc­tive surgery, the man who be­trayed her no longer recog­nises her. It’s a fairly fa­mil­iar theme, but Pet­zold han­dles this com­bi­na­tion of glam­our and in­tense drama with con­sid­er­able skill.
