Anyways, The Princess and The Warrior comes to us from writer/director Tom Tykwer the man behind Run Lola Run. Unlike the fast-paced Run Lola Run, The Princess and The Warrior is a carefully paced, beautiful, and frequently disturbing.
This is Sissi (Franka Potente, you might remember her from the Borne Identity movies). She’s a nurse at the loony bin.
This is Bodo (Benno Fürmann), he’s sad, angry, and pretty. He also saves someone’s life for funsies.
This is Steini (Lars Rudolph) starring at Sissi. He’s crazy AND creepy.
If that didn’t get you interested, here are some more spoiler-free tidbits. There’s a bank robbery, a police chase, murder, attempted suicide, breathtaking cinematography, and a love story buried inside this movie. All this and the movie leaves you feeling glowing on the inside
Amazing story, depth, and some truly twisted stuff, there’s something for everyone. How can you go wrong?
