Yesterday Girl

Alexander Kluge's celebrated first feature (1966), regarded by some as the beginning of the “New German Cinema,” follows the hard times of a young woman from East Germany trying to establish herself in the West. Kluge's sister Alexandra plays the title lead, and the writer-director himself, generally known as the preeminent filmmaker of the Marxist “Frankfurt School,” established himself with this film as a Brechtian social analyst. In German with subtitles. 88 min.
