Last year’s “Perfume: The Story of a Murderer,” the gruesome homicidal fantasy from German director Tom Tykwer, may not be the best indicator of the current direction of German cinema. To get a more accurate sense, audiences might look to the numerous German-language flicks screening at the 15th annual festival of New Films From Germany, Switzerland and Austria. Presented by the Goethe-Institut in Washington and the Austrian and Swiss embassies, the event continues through Thursday at Landmark Theatres’ E Street Cinema and boasts works by 10 European directors. Tonight, Aelrun Goette’s “Under the Ice” and Joerg Kalt’s “Crash Test Dummies” will screen at 7:15 and 9:15, respectively. Tickets (priced from $6.75 to $9.50) may be purchased through Moviefone by calling 202/333-FILM (3456), on the Web at www.moviefone.com) or at the box office, 555 11th St. NW. Call 202/452-7672 or log onto www.goethe.de/ins/us/was/enindex.htm for more details.
