Unter dir die Stadt / The City Below (2010) DVD9
In an exclusive panoramic restaurant at the top of a tower overlooking Frankfurt, four businessmen secretly prepare a takeover that will turn a company into the fifth largest in Europe. Among them is Roland (an impassive Robert Hunger-Buhler), a fifty-something with an iron will who has just been named "banker of the year".
Thirty-something Oliver (Mark Waschke) has been working under his orders for the past two months. His wife, the highly independent Svenja (an outstanding Nicolette Krebitz), is looking for work in the arts sector, without much success, and has been caught out for lying on her CV.
The big banker and the young woman are irresistibly attracted to one another. Prepared to do anything to satisfy his desire and overcome his target’s initial reticence, Roland uses his power to send her husband, an ambitious and nai"ve executive, on a long-term assignment in Indonesia, a potentially very dangerous trip (a detail carefully hidden from the young man on his departure). But although Svenja quickly succumbs to the mutual attraction, the relationship’s initial imbalance of power suddenly changes sides...
