Unknown (2011, UK/Germ./Fr.), 113 minutes, D: Jaume Collet-Serra
Jaume Collet-Serra's fast-paced psychological mystery-thriller was entirely set (and shot) in both parts of the reunified capital city of Berlin. The action thriller's intriguing premise - a crisis of stolen identity - occurred during Dr. Martin Harris' (Liam Neeson) business trip to the city to attend a biotechnology conference. When he took a taxi (driven by illegal immigrant Gina (Diane Kruger)) from the world-famous Hotel Adlon back to the airport to retrieve his forgotten briefcase, a car crash landed him in the hospital, where he awoke four days later from a coma with his identity completely erased. The story's theme allegorically reflected the dichotomous suffering that the historic city of Berlin experienced during its many years of division. On a quest all around the city's neighborhoods and landmarks, the isolated man retraced his steps to discover who he was - trying to connect with the world he thought he belonged to, but facing conspiratorial alienation and denials everywhere. He was even accused of being an 'imposter' when confronted by another Dr. Martin Harris (Aidan Quinn) and his own wife Liz (January Jones). Trapped in an absurd labyrinth in a foreign country and on the run from assassins, the film revealed more identity-related twists and turns as he raced against time to prevent an assassination plot.

War Horse (2011), 146 minutes, D: Steven Spielberg
