The beautiful actress Nina Hoss delivers a riveting performance in the film “Barbara”. Entrenched in a desperate moment in time and leading a volatile life, her character is suffocating with ‘looking over your shoulder’ tension.
Craving the need to escape, craving freedom from this chaos in which she lives, she is forced to attempt that which is necessary to achieve such things. Yet, in her seemingly self-centered journey, Nina Hoss holds true to her honor and expresses the deep feelings of compassion and caring, selflessness and the simple human desire to help others.
Nina Hoss walks a tight rope and does it so well. She is quiet and strong, delicate and focused. Biting down on her turmoil and struggling to make difficult choices. This is a brilliant performance from an actress who quite proficiently delivers brilliant performances. Thank you, Nina Hoss. You are truly wonderful.
