Jerichow is a 2008 German drama film written and directed by Christian Petzold. It is loosely inspired by the American novel The Postman Always Rings Twice (1934) by James M. Cain.

The film was invited into the competition of the 65th Venice Film Festival, as the first film to be shown, and was also nominated for the 2009 German Film Prize in the Best Feature Film and Best Director categories. The official German premiere was on 8 January 2009. The American showings were in German with English subtitles. As the title suggests, the film takes place in the German town of Jerichow.

Synopsis

A former criminal is married to a Turkish immigrant to Germany, Ali Ozkan, who marries a woman named Laura. Ali's wife starts an affair with Thomas, an Afghanistan war veteran from Germany, because she is beaten by her husband. Thomas came into their life when he helped Ali after he crashed his car due to being drunk. Ali mistreated him as well after he accepted a job proposal. As the drama continues, violence starts.

East Germany in 1980: Barbara (Nina Hoss) is a chain-smoking physician whom we meet as she is arriving for her first day at a small rural hospital near the Baltic Sea. She had been at the prestigious Charité hospital in East Berlin but, after she'd filed an "Ausreiseantrag" – an official request to leave East Germany – she had been incarcerated and then transferred to this small town where she is still monitored by the Stasi. Twice in the film, we see the Stasi punish Barbara for the hours in which they cannot find her, by searching her house, strip-searching and cavity-searching her.
