Four Minutes
Director:Chris Kraus
Cert:15 Year: 2006 Length:115mins
Country:Germany Language:German
A multiple-award winner in Germany, the title of Four Minutes refers to the musical and emotional climax of a claustrophobic prison-set relationship drama between a buttoned-up music teacher and her violent but talented pupil (played by 'a mesmerizing Hannah Herzsprung' (Jeanette Catsoulis, New York Times)). A seam of dark humour runs through this intense psychodrama, where the present gradually reveals the dark passions of the past.

Critics

“A marvellous piece of cinema that hides its secrets like a Russian doll.”
