Flammen & Citronen Flame & Citron /
Copenhagen, 1944. The exploits of Flame and Citron, a duo of assassins with the Danish resistance movement are becoming legendary. They begin by dispatching Danish collaborators and graduate to the occupying Nazis, after which the SS puts bounties on their heads. Their ultimate goal: Gestapo commandant Karl Heinz Hoffmann. As loyal Danes with a hatred of the Nazi occupation, they kill Danes who are collaborating. Flame seems empowered by killing, growing ever more reckless with his tactics. Citron's dread increases almost hourly, as the running, hiding, and furtive meetings with his estranged wife gnaws at his soul. Who can they trust? Who is giving their orders? What if there has been insidious infiltration and their skills are being misused? For these good men, resistance isn't futile, but it does come with its own terrible cost.

After the tragic incident is over and several of the terrorists have gone free, the Israeli government of Golda Meir recruits Avner to lead a team of undercover agents to hunt down those responsible throughout Europe, and eliminate them one-by-one. It is physically and emotionally messy work, and conflicts between Avner and his team's handler, Ephraim, over information Avner doesn't want to provide only make things harder. Soon the work starts to take its toll on Avner, especially as it becomes clear that Avner is being hunted in return, and that his family's safety may be in jeopardy.

Road trilogy Alice in the cities ; Wrong move ; Kings of the road /
"In the 1970s, Wim Wenders was among the first true international breakthrough artists of the revolutionary New German Cinema movement, a filmmaker whose fascination with the physical landscapes and emotional contours of the open road proved to be universal. In the middle of that decade, Wenders embarked on a three-film journey that took him from the wide roads of Germany to the endless highways of the United States and back again. Each starring Rüdiger Vogler as the director's alter ego, Alice in the Cities, Wrong Move, and Kings of the Road are dramas of emotional transformation that follow their characters' searches for themselves, all rendered with uncommon soulfulness and visual poetry."--Box. Alice in the Cities: A German journalist is driving across the United States to research an article; it's disappointing trip, during which he is unable to truly connect with what he sees. Things change, however, when he has no choice but to take a young girl named Alice with him on his return trip to Germany, after her mother- whom he just met- leaves the child in his care. Wrong Move: The story of an aimless writer who leaves his hometown to find himself and winds up befriending a group of other travelers. Seeking inspiration to help him escape his creative funk, he instead discovers the limits of attempts to refashion one's identity. Kings of the Road: A roving film projector repairman saves the life of depressed psychologist who has driven his Volkswagen into a river, and they end up on the road together, traveling from one rural German movie to another. Along the way, the two men, each running from his past, bond over their shared loneliness.

Taking sides
After Hitler took over power in 1933, many Jewish artists were forced to leave Germany. Wilhelm Furtwängler choose to stay. Though never a member of the party, he was a receipient of honors associated with party membership. However, the conductor often used his position and contacts to save hundreds of Jewish musicians from concentration camps. When U.S. Major Steve Arnold is tasked with the pre-trial investigations, his aim is to prove that the conductor's genius contributed to the Nazi propaganda, while Furtwängler insisted he stayed to bring comfort to the German people with his music.
