I did watch a really fascinating, engrossing German film tonight set in (depressing) 1980 East Germany…entitled Barbara. Very, very slow paced film and much of it is a quiet, blink and you’ll miss it introspective character study. The blankness and coldness reflected the flat lives of the East Germans who wanted out of the socialist/communist regime. I thought the atmospheric quality to the film was great, in some ways it was reminiscent of another great Cold War East German film a few years back, The Lives Of Others (that one is an eery, powerful, chilling film)!

This was actually Harrison Ford improvising. There was supposed to be a long complicated battle where he used the whip to disarm the guy, but Harrison had dysentery and it was hot and he said “Hey Steven can I just shoot him?” and Spielberg liked it so much it went in the movie.
Dysentery never looks so delicious
That guy who he shot spent months training with the sword
Ford was literally on the verge of dying during this part of the production.
