Greatest German Movies


The Top Ten

1 Nosferatu
2 The Lives of Others
3 Das Boot

One of the greatest German movie ever. No doubt about it. - LordofL

4 M

Simply outstanding in catching the paranoia in the late 1920s and early 1930s in Germany. And great camera, great acting!

5 The White Ribbon

It's not my favourite either, but I'm surprised it's not in the Top 3.

6 Fitzcarraldo
7 Metropolis

Incredible Sci-Fi for that time - MatrixGuy

It's a epic sci-fi movie with dystopian setting. Sci-fi movie released in 1927! In 1927, no I ain't kidding. - LordofL

8 Der Schuh des Manitu
9 Run Lola Run
10 Aguirre, the Wrath of God

12 Christiane F.
13 TRaumschiff Surprise
14 Nosferatu the Vampyre
15 The Baader Meinhof Complex
