‘Tár’ Actress Nina Hoss to Star in ‘The Other Side’

German actress Nina Hoss (Phoenix, Tár, Barbara) has signed on to star in The Other Side, an upcoming adventure thriller from German director Mariko Minoguchi.

Hoss will play Hanna, a doctor who, during the midst of an epidemic, goes into self-isolation in the mountain wilderness to protect herself and others.

Best known for her many collaborations with German director Christian Petzold —including 2007’s Yella, 2012’s Barbara and 2014’s Phoenix — Hoss played Cate Blanchett’s wife in Todd Field’s Oscar-nominated Tár (2022) and had a recurring role as Astrid in seasons 5 and 6 of Showtime’s Emmy-winning series Homeland and in Amazon’s action series Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan. More recently, Hoss co-starred in Claire Burger’s coming-of-age romantic drama Langue Étrangère, which premiered at the Berlin Film Festival last month, and in Radu Jude’s freewheeling feminist satire Do Not Expect Too Much From the End of the World, which premiered in competition in Locarno last year.

The Other Side is Minoguchi’s follow-up to her well-received feature debut Relativity, which premiered at the 2019 Munich Film Festival and won the best screenplay and best first feature prizes at the German Film Critics Awards. Relativity is a love story thriller with a metaphysical twist, following Nora, a supermarket cashier (played by Saskia Rosendahl) and her apparently random encounters and affairs with aspiring physicist Aron (Julius Feldmeier) and Natan (Edin Hasanovic) and the chaos they trigger.

Trini Götze and David Armati Lechner are producing The Other Side for Munich-based Trimafilm. Berlin-based distributor X Verleih has come on board to release the movie in Germany. Principal photography is set to begin this summer.
