Shadows and Fog (1991)
A beautifully filmed and intriguing tribute to German Expressionism, Shadows and Fog takes a look at both the Central European sensibility between the World Wars, as well other themes like magical realism.
A bookkeeper, Max Kleinman, is recruited by neighbors to find a strangler who has been killing victims in town. He loses his friends, but finds Irmy, who is in town with the circus.
