As a result of this, most domestic film industries around the world are somewhat limited in capacity, unable to produce films with budgets comparable to their American counterparts.
However, this is not to say that non-American nations cannot produce films with a level of quality comparable or even superior to American features, as the five films featured on this list, highlights of German cinema from 2000-present (which means that other excellent films such as 1981’s Das Boot, 1998’s Run Lola Run and 1927’s Metropolis are omitted), are testament to.

A biopic of the German boxer and heavyweight champion Max Schmeling.
Nazi Germany is a historical setting we are all familiar with. Films set within the Third Reich often have similarities; good natured people trying to help persecuted Jewish neighbours, informers, political intimidation, concentration camps and the striking red background of the swastika. Equally there are areas often overlooked. The boxing rings for example.
Max Schmeling is a German film directed by Uwe Boll which tells the story of one of the 20th century’s greatest boxers. He became world champion in the early 1930s, getting his big break by beating the title holder by default after an illegal “low blow” from his opponent. The film begins by following Max as a paratrooper for the German army in Crete,
Directed by Roland Suso Richter.
Starring Heino Ferch, Nicolette Krebitz, Alexandra Maria Lara and Sebastian Koch.
A group of West Germans hatch an audacious plan to rescue their loves ones from the communist regime of the East by tunnelling beneath the Berlin Wall.
Film fans love a good tunnel. Whether it be the ingenious method for a daring bank robbery or the claustrophobic road to freedom from a tightly fenced Pow camp, they are a vital ingredient of many a cinematic classic. Tunnels are a striking but simple storytelling device, that place the focus of the narrative firmly on the characters of people getting from one place to another, usually against the odds and at a snail’s pace. And what are all stories but snappier versions of the long and slow journey of life?

Hildegard von Bingen was a 12th-century abbess who really pissed off the men around her.
The world of the 11th-century was one in which the overreaching arms of the patriarchal Catholic church controlled every aspect of women’s (and most men’s) lives; a woman was told when she can have sex, with whom, and for what purposes. She was told what power she could have in her family and who she must obey (men). And for a nun in the middle ages, it was a dozen times worse. Nuns were the bottom of the rung, and still are, in the catholic church, beholden to their male leaders *cough* oppressors. That’s why the story of Hildegard von Bingen, thankfully still in existence due to numerous volumes dictated by the nun herself,
The latest film by German director Margarethe von Trotta (Rosenstrasse) follows Hildegard von Bingen (Barbara Sukowa), a German nun best known for her musical compositions, her knowledge in herbal medicine and her religious "visions". In 1106, at the age of eight, Hildegard is sent by her parents at the Benedictine monastery of Disibodenberg. Under the supervision of mother Jutta (Lena Stolze), Hildegard studies herbal medicine, reading, writing and Christianity. Thirty years later, mother Jutta dies and Hildegard is elected as the female abbot by her sisters.
Because she believes she occasionally has "visions" sent by God, Hildegard describes them to brother Volmar (Heino Ferch). With the authorization of the pope,
