2 Episodes

Things get complicated when long-dormant relationships are suddenly brought back to life. In Jerry Carlsson’s surreally destabilizing science-fiction love story SUCCESSFUL THAWING OF MR. MORO, a man faces a crisis when a scientific breakthrough makes it possible for his cryogenically frozen former partner to be reanimated. But is that really what he wants? Master director Christian Petzold’s spellbinding PHOENIX also rises from the embers of a reawakened love affair—one that draws a shattered woman into a labyrinthine mystery of identity, deception, and rebirth in post–World War II Germany.
