Robert Sigl's Laurin (1989) on blu-ray from Bildstoerung (Germany), restored in 2K from the original 35mm negative



Germany at the beginning of the 20th century. In a small coastal village a boy kills. In agonizing visions, little Laurin (Dora Szinetar) sees the criminal and his gruesome deeds. But how can she put him? Her mother is dead and the father at sea...

I would love some recommendations on low-key dramas similar to You can count on me and maybe The Shape of Things, preferably from the beginning of the 00s. They are so comforting to watch for some reason.

You can count on me are also the perfect film to watch before going to sleep. It might be the Mark Ruffalo effect. I would much rather watch a film if Ruffalo is in it, and I haven't decided if it's a gay-crush yet or if it's one of those manly dude-crushes you have on someone like Marlon Brandon, but he's weirdly great, right? Right!?

Anyway..

I can't say I've seen those so my rec may be a bit off, but the great master of low-key drama is Koreeda.
Shillin' my thread below.

Still Walking and Nobody Knows are good starting points.

Off the top of my head: Me Without You, Dreamland (2006), Shattered Glass, The Dreamlife of Angels, Never Let Me Go, Blue Car, Junebug, Drinking Buddies, Brooklyn

Oh, yeah. I was going to watch these years ago, but never did for some reason. Thanks.

Baumbach is such a hit or miss. I'm looking forward to this though.

I'll quote this line by @fauxbeatpoet about the movie : "Living with inherited trauma is noisy business."

I wasn't into the story at all.  I just kept thinking, "Wow.  Great cast.  They sure have a lot of words to say...  Wonder how many pages the script was...?"

What do you mean by unnaturally stylized? To me it is filmed like most of his movies. I find the structure fascinating. It's mostly linear and the gaps add something to the story. They all follow the same "story" in a different way.

I don't know. It deeply touched me.

I worship Baumbach, but this is a mess-- he so clearly aims for accessible broad material, but he's trapped by just how talky and unnaturally stylized the film is
